I was watching Prime 9 this morning on MLB Network. It was a countdown of the 9 greatest pitching seasons of all time. Doc Gooden’s sophomore season was on the list. Being the mechanical guy I am, I used the benefits of my DVR and put his mechanics in slow motion. One of the things I noticed, other than he broke his hands with his elbow, Doc threw across his body. I know this can cause some movement, but people have advised me not to throw across my body.
Why is this bad?
