The Science of Pitching, Redux.

In baseball, a pitcher’s motion has long been the subject of scientific analysis. Now, the coach of a talented staff is getting even closer to figuring out what works and what doesn’t. By Steve Kettmann. [Wired News]

As far as I know the Mariners aren’t doing anything with this yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if their excellent young pitching coach Brian Price gets them up to speed shortly. From what I’ve seen and heard he seems to be a pretty computer savvy guy and puts it to good use when working with his pitching staff. I give him a lot of credit for the M’s success over the last few years.
