How do we recalibrate our reliance on the radar gun for modern-day pitching evaluation?

A month ago, I was lamenting the modern development of today's pitchers, and a theme that was central to my position was that the present-day obsession with the radar gun has created an unhealthy paradigm shift in the ways that pitchers are bred, developed, and used at the highest level. I then spent the past couple weeks combing through the group of pitchers who have lost the most velocity, highlighting their radar-gun readings and the excellent resources at Brooks Baseball to better understand the trials and tribulations of some of the game's biggest hurlers.

Is the 2015 break out starter breaking down?

Chris Archer broke out last season, throwing more than 200 innings for the first time in his career, posting another ERA in the low 3.00's and adding nearly eight percentage points to his strikeout rate.

Sure, he walked three batters and gave up three runs (two earned) and only lasted 5.0 innings (despite throwing 107 pitches), but a dozen strikeouts have a way of distracting attention and the final tally wasn't so bad when considering his hard-hitting opponent that day, the Toronto Blue Jays.

When you spend too much time admiring the beauty of the trees, you don't realize the forest is on fire.

I fear for the modern pitcher. Little League, travel ball, college, the pros—we are witnessing a revolution in the way that pitchers are grown, used, and eventually discarded, with results that look good in the box score but which claim the limbs of countless hurlers every year.

The Royals break out the cash to sign a pitcher known more for his quantity than his quality. Was it worth it?
