  1. Funny how a really useful and insightful post is no guarantee of attracting even a single comment, apparently.

    This, along with Fister’s improvements in Detroit and Scherzer’s post-April dominance, has me maybe really impressed with the Tigers’ coaching of starters (except Porcello).

  2. The “September version” of Anderson wasn’t all that great. A’s fans should hope for the August version.

    I think Sanchez has the edge in this match up.

  3. Funny I asked this question yesterday, and got a nice answer. If only all customer service was this prompt!

    When I bowled regularly, I remember an instructor telling me to do something as small as shifting the position my pinky was in relation to the bowling ball. It sounded absurd. Yet after a month, my average in the league increased 15 points. The smallest of adjustments can pay big dividends.

    Either way, very insightful!

  4. Not only has he moved his release point over an inch or two, the release point appears to be clustered more. If his release point is more consistent, wouldn’t you expect better results?

  5. Great article, that release point thing is really interesting as well! Watching the Tigers telecast I know they’ve talked about the Tigers coaches working with Anibal but I don’t recall anything they said jumping out, other than that they were pleased with him carrying out the adjustments on the mound. i.e. he was coachable. Maybe that movement was what they were happy about.

    I half-dismissed his improvement based on pitching to KC, Cle, KC, Cle, Min, but this makes sense too, hopefully improved Anibal shows up tonight!
