Which one is normally used when a runner is on base. I read the article also and am tring to remember what it said


Stretch for On Base

Windup for No Runners

If you love Wang, does this make you a pitcher or a catcher? ;-) .

Not sure about Chien-Ming, but this is certainly an interesting thread title... :-o

No need to be confused. You are who you are, and it's nobody's business but your own ;-) .

Wang has a slight pause when he throws with no runners on the base. For some reason his pitches don't get nearly as much movement when there are runners on base. I didn't read that New york article, but i have watched all of his starts this year and in the last o's game the announcers were talking about it and showing examples.

This is sort of perhaps related to that other thread, where I'd cited Baseball Forecaster's notation of his strand% and hit% both being reflective of a higher than expected degree of luck last year and that the #s so far kind of suggest that he's returning to where he'd be w/ his skill set.

The motion business is interesting though, if they could get somebody to fix it somehow perhaps he'd bounce back a bit? :-?
