[quote=“jhanson”]Is anyone else tired of Lincecum being used as an example?
Im glad that works for him, but does anyone really think by repilcating his motion they will be able to throw likes he does?
If Lincecum decided to throw like Koufax, he would still throw as hard and probably be just as effective.
Maybe all my pitchers should grow thier hair out too.
Mark Prior had come of the best mechanics Ive ever seen. Where is he at again??[/quote]
Replicating certain aspects of professional pitchers mechanics can help. Some parts of his mechanics may be hard to incorporate for some, but if you could copy certain aspects (good momentum, good timing, etc) you can improve.
Basically, nobody on this board is guaranteeing that anyone will be able to throw 95+ even if they have great mechanics, eat right, and do good workouts. But it’s naive to think that you can’t improve your own ability by tweaking your mechanics, eat right, and do good workouts.
