Mike Marshall

Regarding Marshall, the answer is there is no answer. Lets move on from the Yankees, there is a bigger world out there. I repeat again professional sport is not about excellence and winning it is about entertainment. The Yankees will make tons of money win or lose.

Vern,
I can not help it but most people will always see...professional sport is about excellence and performance. The affirmation is on television constantly, so and so raising the Lombardo Trophy, the Grey Cup etc etc.

I am not sure if you can not make it any clearer than stating what you have said already.

From Dr. Mike Marshall's Website He sounds like a "guru" to me. My interest in him has nothing to do with the Yankees or pro baseball but in developing young baseball pitchers. I first remember him as a kid pitching for the hated Dodgers against my Reds. It seems he is a bit more educated and not as inbred as other baseball people despite him having played the game. He also was a type of pitcher the game will likely never see again and can not help but wonder if it was related to training or him being a complete physical freak.

From his website,

"Now, I am releasing my doctoral dissertation on baseball pitching. Professional videographers could do a better job than I did of taking the video. Professional graphic artists could do a better job than I did of doing the graphics.

But, I am the only person able explain the injurious and biomechanical flaws in the 'traditional' baseball pitching motion. I am the only person able to explain how to eliminate these injurious and biomechanical flaws. And, I am the only person able to explain my pitching motion.

In this video, you will learn what to do and why. If parents, coaches and pitchers follow the instructions in this video, then baseball pitchers of all ages will become the best, injury-free highly-skilled baseball pitchers that they can be."

Vern,
I agree with the entertainment viewpoint. However, more seats are filled if the team/individual wins!

More seats ARE NOT always filled whether team/individual wins! In 2005 Chicago White Sox, they did not have a sell out until the World Series. OK bad example! What is Kansas City Royals attendance versus New York Yankees in 2006? In 2005 Kansas City Royals had more than 100 LOSSES (106) and 2006 KC compiled another 100 LOSSES. Kansas City still made money. How so? 1)It's called Revenue Sharing. Who do you think pays the players' ridiculous salaries? Who do you think pays Alex Rodriguez 25 millions/year 2) Fans! MLB...NBA...NFL...NHL total attendance...it's called FANS.

What about individual sport? Take tennis. Lets' see..obviously Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will fill seats at some invitational because of their names. Seats will still be filled whether Roger Federer plays a known name as Andy Roddick or an unknown Lukas Dlouhy.

Not a SUPER FAN

Mike Marshall was a genetic freak.
Anyone that throws will have some form of labral tears or debris in their elbow or shoulder. Injuries are inevitible with throwing athletes! It is the ability to bounce back.
