Pitching mechanics (what I tweeted: From Mar 17-23)

ESPN the Magazine’s MLB Preveiw section is just awesome. I can not take enough of this infographic of just how awful Strasburg’s mechanic is…, eh, I mean how awesome Maddux’s is (OK, That’s better).

Muddux vs Strasburg

Maddux's spine is straighter; he's stable on his back leg with his head and spine over his center of gravity. Strasburg's spine is at 11 o'clock, and his back leg is straight. He's striding too far toward the righthand batter's box. He then has to literally fight across his body toward home plate. He's out of sequence: His shoulders are already pinching back to throw, but his front foot hasn't yet hit the ground." says Paul Reddick.

I been tweeting nonsense since May 19, 2007 (over 4 years, can you believe that?). I put weekly digests of my tweets on my blog, so that I can search for it quicker using my blog’s search function. I tweet awfully a lot about baseball (I am a Red Sox fan), but if you are interested, please follow me at @DaigoFuji. Here are my tweets:
