OK, here's my very first diary. I hope people find it worth taking a look at. I ran across a link to this article over on the Cubs MLB board and thought it would be worth bringing to people's attention over here:
Carlos Gomez has broken up video of Prior's delivery as it's changed from 2001-2007 and found some clear differences that might explain some of his problems.
As there have been a couple of recent posts concerning Priors delivery past and present I thought this might be a useful addition. Not being very knowledgeable about the role of mechanics in pitching (other than to know that they play a significant role in a pitcher's success or failure) as others here are, I can't say that Gomez's conclusions are relevant. Comments would be appreciated.
