From JP Morosi:

"By Verlander's count, that was the 10th different hypothesis he tested during film and bullpen sessions in April and May last season. On this date last year, his ERA was 4.87.

"If I go back and look at the things I tried, they all made sense [after] that," Verlander said. "Once I found the way the elbow tracked, I [realized], 'If I fix this, everything should fall into place.' And it did."

Verlander remembers the night when it all clicked: June 21 in Seattle. He was perfect through five innings and struck out a season-high 11 batters. Even though the Tigers lost, Verlander knew he was back. "

Except two starts later he recorded zero strikeouts for the first time since a Bush was president or something.  Bad luck to attend that game.

Nice story about Cole, Houston's pitching coaching concepts with a few Verlander name drops.

That was a very good read. Thanks for posting.  Sounds like Pittsburgh is kind of lacking in the pitching analytics department.

Jake Rogers awoke from a 2 month coma, hit 3 HRs last night. Has a 1.594 OPS in 6 June games. SSS

He reads the forum.  He saw some criticism.  He knew he needed to start performing.
