  • Reyes Story - Is He Dissing Duncan Here?

    http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/spo...E?OpenDocument

    I just read this and after many threads debating this last season, I'm wondering if anyone is thinking Reyes is just going back to his old mechanics now and basically saying "fuck you" to Duncan?

    Sometimes Duncan should just coach, and not try to reinvent the wheel.

    Look at Ankiel. Pitched fine, but Duncan changed his mechanics fearing injury, wound up messing him up mentally, and he got injured not pitching his natural delivery.

      IIRC, every independent expert said that Ankiel would have had certain injury with the way he was throwing before Duncan had him change his mechanics.

        Not to mention that his injuries happened quite some time after he'd been sent back to the minors.

          I wouldn't doubt that, but I believe the change in Mechanics screwed him up between the ears.

          Everybody gets hurt, unless they're on HGH...

          Reyes
          Morris
          Wood
          Prior

          If Ankiel continues to rake and winds up having a successful career as an outfielder then the Cards dodged a bullet, but that doesn't always happen.

            Unless he changed the mechanics on Oct. 1, they were working pretty damn well before he flipped out.

              Yeah, 194 K in 175 IP and leading the rotation in ERA are not the marks of a guy with a messed-up delivery.

                  albeit an inability to put away hitters after consistently leading in counts.

                  Damn....can't remember where I've seen this before....

                      The 'screw it, I'm pitching how I want' approach goes over real well with Duncan/Larussa

                      He's gonna need a sub 2.00 ERA to get a sniff of the rotation.

                        Went over pretty good with NL hitters, though.

                            If I were Tony/Dave, I would tell him, We're giving you three more starts. Pitch any way you want to. Make him put up or shut up. If he pitches great, leave him alone. If he sucks, either cut him or tell him to STFU and pay attention.
