    "Dead Arm Period" - Fact or Fiction?

    I have heard much about this Spring Training phenomena for many years now. And I gotta say that I have long suspected that the Reds have used this "dead arm" angle to explain most of the dead weight in the pitching staff over the last few years.

    Those of you who are more knowledgeable than I about these things, is this a factual phenomena or is it fodder to try to explain lousy pitching?
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.

    For some pitchers it seems to last throughout the season.

    El Facto
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
