Baseball trivia question

What pitcher said this?

"I could probably throw harder if I wanted but why? When they're in a jam, a lot of pitchers try to throw harder. Me, I try to locate better. I try to do two things: locate my fastball and change speeds. That's it.”

    the first guy who came to my mind, and i mean he popped into my head instantly after reading that quote, is Greg Maddux

    the movement on his pitches and his ability to consistently paint the corners.....................dude was Rembrandt on a mound

    his fastball probably never topped the low 90s, but to a hitter he was probably throwing 100

    he mesmerized me every time i watched one of his starts

    Yes sir, you are correct, the great Greg Maddux said that. I grew up a Braves fan, watch him when he played in Atlanta, he was truly amazing. He was like an artist, the ball was his brush and homeplate was his canvas.
