Baseball Intellect took a look at Chien-Ming Wang’s messed up mechanics yesterday. Wang is slumping his back as he pitches, causing a series of problems. The bottom line?
So my advice for Wang? First correct the posture problem by going back to a more upright position. Second, he needs to increase the tempo of his delivery and get his body moving at a faster rate, which should help correct the timing problems he’s developed. If he fixes the first two issues, the dragline should come back on its own because a dragline is a result of efficient mechanics and not something a pitcher can control on his own.
I’m no pitcher, so most of this language is foreign to me. A mechanical expanation is the best one that Yankee fans can hope for. A lingering injury or mental issue would be much more difficult for the Yankees to fix.
Wang’s injury seems to be another event in a series of bad luck incidents for the Yankees this season. Alex Rodriguez leaving spring trainnig with a strange injury. Mark Teixeira forgetting how to hit the ball. The entire bullpen melting down at once. Sabathia and Burnett being unable to make quality starts. Our luck just isn’t working out lately. Its a wonder the team is above .500.
