Super great article talking about how it happens, why pitchers need it, how to correct and just anything relating to it. Excellent Read.

this is very interesting.. never realized how big of a difference throwing motions make.

thats a good comparison of good throwing motion (maddux) vs bad (strasburg)

Throwing motion is probably the single biggest "controllable" variable (some people are just more injury-proned than others).

Really hope Stras can straighten it out.

he really needs to throw his fastball slower and work on breaking ball pitches or he'll mess up his arm permanently most likely.

lol very true. Curveballs are not supposed to be fast. I pitch for a rec 16-18 year old baseball league and my curveball is not very fast but it moves a lot.

He needs to get his curveball down to the 70-79 MPH range and his slider down to low to mid 80s. a 92 MPH curveball is essentially a cut or 2 seam fastball IMO
