"I think Ruby thinks too much and he overuses his pitches," Martinez tweeted during the game. "He doesn't know how great of a stuff he has, so he still doesn't trust it."
That's the message the D-backs' coaching staff has tried to get through to De La Rosa over the past year: Trust your stuff.
"I think it was spot on," Hale said of Martinez's comments. "Hopefully Pedro will talk to him. I know that they're friendly. I think everything that I read -- somebody showed me those tweets [since] I don't have Twitter -- was spot on. Don't even shake, let the catcher put something down and let it go, because your stuff is good enough to beat the hitter."
