Ok, first off I know that mechanics do matter. But as my DD and I were watching the H.S. All American game, she asked me the question... " do mechanics even matter? why do I work so hard at the proper mechanics when so many very good pitchers have horrible mechanics?" Now of course she asked this as soon as we saw Dallas Escabedo pitch. Not to knock her at all as her wins speak for themselves. But her mechanics? she doesn't open in the least bit, what kind of damage is that doing to her shoulder? And thus the question, "do mechanics even matter?" either you got it or you dont? Just thought I would throw this out there for discussion.
