They missed it when they said: “you will see that Strasburg leads with his elbow when his landing foot hits the ground whereas Champan has his elbow pointing down and the ball pointing up. The scientific research done by Dr. James Andrews and his staff at ASMI clearly shows that Stephen Strasburg??….s elbow position often leads to injury.”
Of course you can’t really tell much from a still photo, but it very well could be that Chapman has an early arm. Either way, I see nothing wrong with Strasburg’s arm position at foot strike. Strasburg just has a later arm.
They do bring up a good question though. Is there such a thing as too much MER? We deal with not enough MER here and I don’t recall too much being discussed.
