I agree that there is a slight drop in velocity which might mean that he has an injury which would explain why his fastball would be getting hammered, but his effective movement on his offspeed pitches I'm not sure can be traced to a slight reduction in velocity. Hard to tell from afar.

Don't you think an injury would either produce a change in mechanics or a loss in velocity? The only thing that is evident from the side by side gifs, is that if they are the same pitch, he is clearly getting over the top on his follow through on the strikeout and is more upright on the flat pitch that is hit. This make me believe that they are not the same pitch. I noticed this "missing bats" trend coming out of spring training, its hard to get worked up after seeing ST games but I saw him pitch in person 4 or 5 times in AZ and you could tell then that we might be in some trouble.

I think for my blood pressure I need to checkout until June 1st and then check back to see what's happening. Have a marry month of May ya'll.

@Dodgers' 7th Ring I'd be more worried about Ethier not earning his money than Kemp.

@A WHOLE NEW PURPLE (drank) where they belong
Just as I thought it was worth the team playing in front of a half empty stadium to force McCourt out, I'm also willing to sacrifice a season if it means that we could get rid of Colletti. The only thing that is disturbing is all the injuries that will be used as an excuse for the poor season (i.e., see Lakers). Even though Crawford, AGon and Punto are off to solid seasons I still can't let go of eating all the contract money from the four players AND giving up two sure fire MLB pitching prospects.

@DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy Kings win tonight and their right back to repeating.

@DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy With two choking dogs playing against each other someone has to win. I still love the joke, how do you kill a shark? let them into the playoffs.
@plaza234 @A WHOLE NEW PURPLE (drank) Its not as if he is hitting into bad luck. He is a pop up machine which is related to swing mechanics and we know that he has been unwilling to adjust in the past.
@PagansOedipalComplex I would like to have a split screen on Mattingly the time that Cruz pops up with runners in scoring position.
@Real Tom How could you want Mattingly gone before Colletti? The idea that he thought he had a quality bench to back up a starting line-up that had an injury history is crazy. If he was over budget then he should have dealt Ethier over the winter to free up some money to get a bench that can actually play. Did we all hope that Cruz wasn't going to turn into a pumpkin? Sure, but is anyone surprised that he did. I think everyone that reads this site was thinking that they didn't have a righthanded bench OF/1B.
I don't know how you can expect much more from Mattingly. When your choices are between 4-5 guys that are .200 hitters with no power how high can the expectations be? If he had a full roster without injury and they had the same record then I'd think it might be time but not now.
Back to the Kings

Did we see enough of fat Ronny last night?
@JohnM (Troll Extraordinaire) @West Coast Ram No way, block the plate . Gordon weighs what 150 lbs?
Thanks Posey for being such a pussy.
