I had relatively good seats on the first base side last night. One time it really stood out to me that he slowed his arm down on the slider. It was only that one time that I turned to my friend and pointed it out, but it was quite obvious on that one pitch to me. I did not see that happen in Louisville and even compared some video frame by frame on the breaking ball to the fastball and they were within 1 frame of each other on the release point, which isn't going to be picked up by the human eye. Perhaps it was just a thing where he was thinking about it too much and was trying to do something a little different with that particular pitch?
