A Cautious Eye to the ESPN Article

If you read the ESPN article, you probably noticed the Paul Reddick side article comparing Strasburg and Maddux. There’s a reason I didn’t link to this article. There is obviously a lot we can learn from Greg Maddux but there is also a lot we can learn from Steven Strasburg. They are completely different pitchers. Some universals remain, such as the elbow-shoulder topic, but the article seems to criticize the dynamic movements that result in the 12 mph difference between the two.

Here’s an article that puts a skeptical eye on it.
