What Are The Chances?


The probability that Chance Adams will dominate in his first start against the Red Sox, tomorrow, in Boston.

It just doesn't happen in Yankee land any more.

This is what real pitching coaches do:

Wade Leblanc: This is from an article in Sports Illustrated about the Mariners:
The Yankees released him in March.

Seattle signed him in March despite the obvious: His velocity was down. Brower showed him the numbers, and DeLunas studied his stride in the bullpen, and Leblanc figured out that his stride was half a foot shorter than his ideal. Stottlemyre (that's jr.) then showed LeBlanc video comparing his 2016 stride with the 2018 version,. and he could see right away, he wasn't using his back leg to drive toward the plate. He worked on that, met regularly with the Mariners' mental coach, and threw more cutters and more pitches inside to lefties, based on what his coaches told him.

You're right, Skip.

I've been saying this for awhile: if you look at it, no one—or at least, almost no one—gets better after coming to or coming up with the Yankees. There is no useful instruction.

I pasted the stats. Sorry they didn't format correctly.
