(ESPN)   ESPN put together a neat presentation on 8 pitchers and their pitch mechanics. Come for the players explaining how they work, stay for the D-Backs hate   (espn.go.com ) divider line 16

Amusingly, they traded away the guy who has been doing this sort of stuff on his own for years.

If Luis Gonzalez hadn't been 'roiding, they would still have zero World Series wins.

Wait a sec, it's a little hard to tell from the videos, but are they pitching on flat ground? That kind of changes things a bit, doesn't it?

There's D-Backs hate? What the hell for? I would think they haven't moved beyond D-Backs apathy. Hell, D-Backs awareness would be great.

I wish the Reds could have held onto Bronson Arroyo. They're going to need him when Cueto gets hurt again, and then again later in the season, and then again right before or during the playoffs when it hurts the team the most.

Those pitchers could hurt themselves throwing in slow motion like that.

An interesting link, to be sure, but too much apples and oranges -- it almost seems as if ESPN is trying to say that different pitches are delivered in different ways, even though any pitch from a sidearmer is going to look different from a pitch, even the same one, from someone with an over-the-top delivery.  It would have been more informative to watch one pitcher deliver different pitches to see if there are any noticeable differences in their mechanics, or have all of them throw the same pitch (particularly a breaking ball) and see how different arm angles, leg motions, etc. change the path of the ball.

I liked Steve Carlton the best.  He was a method pitcher.  He always used the old "rub copious quantities of meth into your titties" method of pitching.

Except for the fact that Clemens, Pettite and probably a couple others on that Yankees team were juicing too. DEAL WITH IT

Being as down as I am on this Dbacks team (since the expected ace of the staff had Tommy John surgery today and he wasn't in that piece), it doesn't give me any more confidence that in Cahill's part; there was more red on that BA against screen than blue. He might have had a high groundball rate, but it wasn't thanks to his unsinking sinker.

The D-Backs have always kind of annoyed me.  There've been a few things lately I could point to (Miguel Montero chestbeating over Trevor Bauer and then hitting like a pitcher, for instance) but nothing huge.

The organization's love of beaning opposing batters is going to get someone seriously hurt. That might be worth some hate.
