of course, the main thing is that he def has lost some serious velocity over the years cos of injury troubles
popular assessment, but apparently untrue. my brother-in-law works with the cardinals, and is good buddies with matty. the velocity drop is an intentional thing. matmo was getting fatigued at the end of every year, and duncan suggested keeping a few MPH to himself. if the plan works--and he's still feeling spry--then he might reach back for some of those down the stretch. the good news is that he's feeling really good.
now, webb...i don't know. the quality of his starts has recently improved, so i hope that's a sign of something.
