    The Fix Season 2 Episode 9

    in Baseball

    Angel Borrelli and Joe Janish talk baseball pitching mechanics and injury prevention. In this episode, they discuss updates with pitchers from previous episodes, such as Homer Bailey, Jonathon Niese, Justin Verlander, Vic Black, and Masahiro Tanaka. In particular, Angel explains the connection between Vic Black's herniated disc and his shoulder weakness, and she goes into detail about Tanaka's reduced velocity. Finally, Angel provides a velocity tip by  illustrating -- with photos referenced at OnBaseball.com -- how pitchers need to, and fail to, "get over the front leg."

    5/18/15: Brewers/Tigers, More Updates on Verlander and Babcock

    in Sports

    The Tigers upset themselves against the worst team in the National League, the Milwaukee Brewers, 3-2 in the first of a 3-game series at Comerica Park, and I go crazy about it, as Ed Smith co-hosts with me. This has to be one of the most disgraceful games we've ever seen! DISGRACEFUL! I'll explain it.


    I also have an update each on Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander and Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock, who was earlier reportedly offered a 6-year, $30-million deal by the Buffalo Sabres.

    The Fix Season 2 Episode 7

    in Baseball

    As The Fix podcast closes in on 5,000 all-time listens, Angel and Joe go back to the very first two episodes, which focused on Angel doing detective work to diagnose the nagging shoulder problems of New York Mets pitcher Jonathon Niese. More than a year later, Niese came to the exact same conclusion as Angel -- a mechanical adjustment to his stride alleviates the pain and, hopefully, will prevent further injury to his shoulder. Additionally, Joe and Angel further investigate Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander's triceps injury, with Angel discussing pitching in pain and explaining the process and systems of getting injured pitchers from shutdown mode back to the mound.  Finally, Angel provides a high-level velocity tip, which includes reference to an image that can be found at OnBaseball.com.

    The Fix Season 2 Episode 6

    in Baseball

    Baseball pitching motion expert Angel Borrelli and Joe Janish discuss in detail Justin Verlander's triceps cramp, why it happened, his risk of continuing to pitch with it, how the issue can be fixed, and what pitchers should do if they suffer similar symptoms. In doing so, Angel explains the scientific process of diagnosing and fixing pitching mechanics. Also, Angel uses Masahiro Tanaka's minor UCL tear as an example of what can happen when pitchers pitch through major injuries. Additionally, Angel answers a question from a listener regarding whether weighted balls and weighted ball programs are worthwhile for improving pitching performance. Finally, listeners are treated to a free tip to increase a baseball pitcher's velocity, which will be more easily understood when you see the photo displayed here.

    St. Justin de Jacobis

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    St. Justin de Jacobis -- Born at San Fele, Italy. At 18 he was ordained. After helping found a Vincentian house at Monopoly, he served as superior at Lecce and in 1839 was sent as the first prefect and vicar apostolic to the new Catholic mission at Adua, Ethiopia. His efforts to evangelize met with great opposition., but in 1841 he was included in a delegation of Ethiopian prelates to Cairo to request the Coptic patriarch of Alexandria to appoint one of his monks Abuna (patriarch) of the Ethiopian church. In Cairo, the patriarch denounced the presence of Father de Jacobis on the delegation and intrigued to a point one Salama as Abuna. Some of the delegation then accompanied Father de Jacobis to meet the Pope in Rome. On his return, Father de Jacobis founded a college and seminary at Guala, and in 1846 a vicariate apostolic of the Galla was established, with William Massaia as its first bishop. These developments caused Salama to launch an anti-Catholic campaign. The college was closed, Catholicism was proscribed, and bishop Massaia was forced to return to Aidan. In 1848, he secretly consecrated Father de Jacobis, now a fugitive, bishop at Massawa, with authority to administer the sacraments in the Ethiopian rite. By 1853, the new bishop had ordained some twenty Ethiopians, was ministering to 5000 Catholics, and was able to reopen the college. In 1860, Kedaref Kassa became king as Theodore II and in return for the backing he had received from Abuna Salama, launched a persecution of the Catholics. Bishop de Jacobis was arrested and improsoned. After release he managed to find his way to Halai in southern Eritrea. He spent the rest of his life in missionary work along the Red Sea coast and died in the valley of Alghedien.
