Anyone actually check his front side as he threw? That mech changed over 20 years.
And yes Zita....Maddux and his 16 Gold Gloves is living proof that to be a complete pitcher has it's advantages....just how many additional pitches did he save his arm with those Gold Gloves? In 20+ years he walked less than a thousand batters (999 to be exact...with over 3000 k's) how much arm did that save?
For those who get to thinking that velocity is it and all there is...it may be a gate keeper...but it's success that keeps a player playing...look at Lincecum, he's "learning" how to pitch now that his velo is reduced and the Gigante's obviously see value there.
