Default Lucas Giolito Interview - FGraphs

Lucas Giolito on Striking a Balance Between Smart and Simple

...when Im pitching I like to make it super simple. But things like spin rate and extension play a role in, How good is your stuff? What I especially looked at last year was usually, Im a big extension guy. On my fastball, Ill get seven-foot-whatever

I was looking at some numbers, and saw that I was down to six-foot-eight, six-nine, six-whatever. Thats not what I should be doing. Sure enough, video showed that I was flying open and yanking everything. So that stuff can be very helpful. Same thing with spin rate. Is the ball coming out of your hand at its best right now? It used to just be a feel thing, and now you can actually look at the numbers to back it up.
Shows how much work these kids put into their craft.
