  1. Dave,

    Good stuff here. Question for you in relation to launch angle and how pitchers combat it. I agree with what you said in your breakdown of Corbin’s pitching, but I’ve also heard some baseball people say that pitchers are also combating the launch angle by throwing more fastballs high in the zone or above the zone, ala Justin Verlander. What’s your take on this?
