In your video analysis email today, you compared Beckett’s and Verlander’s mechanics to demonstrate the differences of speed of movement between the two.
I noticed that Verlander seems to turn his lead foot toward the plate a couple of frames after hand break and what appears to be way too soon. I realize it’s a rear angle view, but do you think Verland could move sideways longer?
Verlander has a shorter stride than normal for a guy his size…thus why he turns to land sooner.
But notice that his back leg is very stable with no early hip rotation. Watch kids open early like this and you will see a collapsing back leg as the cause or just getting their arm involved much too early.
He loses the advantage of getting closer to the hitter.
When a pitcher is producing these kind of a results with no injury factors evident you do not mess with them.
Again, hitters do not like it when pitchers move fast.
