Maybe Larry Rothschild needs a computer

Just found this new site devoted to pitching mechanics and a pretty interesting breakdown of Mark Prior's pitching mechanics.

As I've mentioned here before, one of the main things Cubs fans were fed in eager anticipation of Prior's arrival was that he had impeccable mechanics that were on par with some of the all-time great power pitchers.

While it seems to be true that he might have been solid coming out of USC, check out the write up and accompanying video of how things started slowing down for Prior as the years ground on in Chicago.

I don't pretend to be any sort of expert on the mechanics of pitching, but even to this member of the unwashed, uneducated masses, it's not good for the human arm to add that pause to his delivery.

In any event, welcome to DrivelineMechanics.com and I look forward to seeing what they figure out this season. Maybe it's worth dropping a line to the Padres to have them take a peek at this before they break him for 2008?
