A full breakdown of Oliver Perez's delivery,: with video footage, trying to pin down his changes in mechanics since his excellent 2004 season.

Good stuff. I'm surprised they tinker with his mechanics that much yet keep letting him stay that closed to home plate when he lands. With as many pitches as Major League starters throw you would think he would break down in a hurry.

That really is great. It's amazing how breaking down something that looks so similar when done at regular speed shows so many subtle differences when watching it frame by frame. It's also really awesome how small things can add up to just enough difference to be able to go from dominating to getting routinely roughed up.

I think I just learned more in 10 minutes about pitching than I had learned in the previous 5 years. This is a superb post. Thank you, lj.

Makes me wish I had a better pitching coach in college.
