Am I missing something here? Mills is promoting the heck out of Tim Lincecum and Nolan Ryan’s pitching mechanics … but to my eye their mechanics no where near resemble each other. Look how far back (toward the first base bag) Lincecum leans when he separates his hands. Ryan doesn’t (he keeps his chest over his core). Look how much lower the ball is after Lincecum separates his hands. The ball path when Ryan separates his hands is different.
I feel like this is just a poor comparison … and analysis. Also, Lincecum’s stride is much longer than Ryan’s stride. Again, not similar.
And Ryan’s stride foot goes down, then out, close to the front of the mound. Lincecum’s foot is higher off the dirt when he strides. Again, not similar.
