Re: Yu Darvish is ridiculous
Ok, this is cool video, but while I understand at a very low level the concept of pitch recognition, how many hitters distinguish one pitch from another based on release point? Isn't this more about great mechanics than it is something that makes hitting him tougher? Don't hitters use reading spin of the ball as their primary pitch recognition weapon? Arroyo has many different release points and that is tough on hitters also, so why is "same release point for five different pitches" negatively impacting a hitter?
I guess for me, there are a lot of questions begged by making a statement "how are you supposed to hit this guy" in the context of consistent release points on different pitches.
