  1. Awesome! This answers two pitch f/x questions I’ve had about Diamond.

    1. Does he throw a cutter? Pitch f/x always called it a 4-seamer but watching on TV, it’s clear his ball cuts. (4-seamer with cutting action)

    2. Is it a curve or a slider? Pitch f/x says it’s a curve, but the movement without gravity is more similar to a slider. (Curve/slurve)

    Also, I’ve always noticed that he doesn’t throw a 2-seamer, so like he said here, he does a great job creating a downward plane and throwing to the bottom of the zone. (Ugh, I sound like Bert Blyleven there.)
