I’m not quite sure why you feel its necessary to take a backhanded shot at me like that, rather than just say “That guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”, but its all good. If you bothered to read what I said, Its not that it can’t be done, but you have to realize everything from the 1st movement affects everything through the release, it didn’t say there weren’t specific things in a delivery that couldn’t be isolated as causing timing problems, at all. In fact, if anything it was just the opposite.
Ya know, I don’t mind when someone disagrees with me about an opinion, but it does grind on me when I say something true, but I’m made out to be some kind of bumbling fool because I didn’t throw a bunch of advice out there to some soul looking for answers, that I know will likely do little more than cause him more trouble than relief for his issue.
Here’s the bottom line to me. Flopping out a lot of advice to someone without a lot of experience, will often cause them to try several things at the same time because they don’t understand that everything’s tied together, and it takes more than a few tries to get it right. So to me, its preferable to make it plain from the beginning that what they’re looking at is extremely complicated, and that even the very best coaches have no magic pill that fixes something as complicated as timing by trying only one thing.
If it were that simple, every single pitcher that someone like Tom House has ever worked with would have perfect timing, perfect mechanics, and would become a star in the ML. But rather than to simply say its difficult to pinpoint something without seeing it in person, you threw out torso torque and foot plant as possible timing problem causes. Now what do you think is planted in his mind and that he’s gonna be looking for with no idea about how those things fit into the sequence, or that something a early as 1st movement can throw off timing, as well as something as late as release.
Just once on one of these boards I’d like to see some self-proclaimed expert not offer examples of what could be, but rather offer the advice to seek out the best local help they can find, and refrain from throwing out things that have just as much chance of making things worse than better.
Maybe its time for me to just take my leave. Its obvious I have nothing to offer because I’m considered such a bozo.
