How funny that arguement is..just really (And I don't mean it personally).
Pitcherman..these guys (The ones who make the bigs with this inverted w"curse") are so much better than all the geniouses who preach against it..THEY MADE AND ARE PLAYING IN THE BIGS!!!!!!!!!! I'm sorry to shout but this message NEVER SEEMS TO GET THROUGH!!!!! Are you in the bigs? Is O'Leary? 300 humans on earth at any given moment can claim they do that actively for a living...what fraction of the population of earth is that? You say it "Causes injury" but can't prove it medically or scientifically..you would turn a kid who, for no other reason..despite success, away from that path because they throw a way you don't like....it's just stupid...dumb, it makes no sense....if..if a guy makes it through all of the trials to become a major leaguer and is only there for a second because of injury..guess what? It's as far as HIS body could go...you won't make Strasburg better, you'd never had made Drysdale better or any other pitcher "better" by changing any aspect of their delivery..what you would potentially do is short circuit a positive run at the bigs...if the "Cursed W" bothers you so much..train 6 yr olds to not do it...everyone else is on their way and you might just as well bark at the moon and get better response.
If a pitcher is equal and opposite at footstrike what is the "timing" problem? This is O'Leary bs..look for yourself Pitcherman...there are so many different ways professional pitchers get to that spot (E&O @ footstrike) that the absurdity of the comment speaks for itself....
Timing problem..just nebulous enough to sound like it means "something"....meaningless enough to mean "nothing".
Could you please describe to me the manifestations of a "true" timing issue..what will we see when a guy who repeats his mechs like this and delivers the ball over a 20 year career..time after time..for a Hall of Fame run? What is Don Suttons "problem"? Or Drysdales? Even O'Learys new poster child Strasburg..what exactly is his "timing" issue and how does it manifest? And before you throw out his other pet term "rushing"..please define how that manifests itself also.
