Hey guys, haven’t had a chance to listen yet but a question for the next podcast: what’s been up with Madison Bumgarner? Specifically I was looking through his past 5-6 starts and his release point has moved nearly two feet to the right over that time. I assume this is an intentional shift on the rubber as his release points still cluster within each game, but I can’t find any news on the topic. Do you see pitchers making changes like this as a positive or concerning sign of things to come?
