SOMETIMES THE INTERNET LIVES UP TO ITS HYPE:

The $103,000,000 mechanics of Daisuke Matsuzaka (Carlos Gomez, February 26, 2007, Hardball Times)

I will let the smarter folks here at THT get into statistical projections of Daisuke Matsuzaka. Instead, I would like to focus on Matsuzaka's mechanics from a scout's point of view.

Specifically, I'd like to address the mechanical issues that will play a role in how Matsuzaka's career turns out:

1) How efficient is he with his mechanics?
2) Will he keep his velocity/stuff throughout his career?
3) What about potential injury risks?


Without saying anything further, here is a clip of Daisuke Matsuzaka at the World Baseball Classic.
