    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."

    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.

If you had the chance to play against your favorite celebrity and you scored on them are they no longer a celebrity in your eyes? And if you did score on them, does that take way all the good things that celebrity has done?
