2013-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Some years ago Bill James theorized that we would see more submariners because the motion was less stress on the arm and it was a different look, among other things. Instead of a time in the '80s where we had (the effective) Steve Olin and (the not very effective) Todd Frohwirth, now we have no one that I know of. Why did submariners disappear, and is there a chance that style will be resurrected, ever if not anytime soon? Is there anyone in the minors to carry the torch for this very different style?
(delatopia from San Francisco)
The true submariner seems to have all but disappeared (paging Chad Bradford), but I think that we are seeing many more pitchers who adopt a straight sidearm slot. The emphasis on platoon splits and LOOGY's has created a tendency toward closed angles and low trajectories to maximize the lateral movement on pitches, particularly with relievers. I would have to defer to our killer prospect team to uncover any hidden subs in the minors. (Doug Thorburn)
