Washington Nationals skipper Davey Johnson is tired of people asking him about Stephen Strasburg’s delivery. He’s frustrated with the questions about elbow injuries related to Strasburg’s delivery. “It’s all crock,” Johnson said when asked by the Washington Post about changing Strasburg’s approach.
Johnson argues that Strasburg is effective without throwing 100 miles per hour because his command is the most important part of his game. He thinks that “overthrowing” could be the only thing to hinder Strasburg’s game.
“Jim Palmer had the worst delivery of any human being alive,” Johnson said. “But he didn’t overthrow.”
Does DJ think Strasburg will be the next Palmer? A six time All-Star, three time World Series champion, three time Cy Young Award winning Hall of Famer?
