I didn't hear that on TV, but I remember hearing at the time that Gullett or someone else in the Reds org made a change to his delivery that transformed him into an ace pitcher (at least until health issues killed his career).
Schourek might be the best scrap heap/reclamation project of all time
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
