Doug Thorburn's back from vacation so he and Paul Sporer reunite to discuss pitching! The email section offered a bevy of new topics including Jordan Walden's hop-step delivery, pitcher momentum, the calling of games, and why a reliable third pitch is so important for a budding starter. Their GOTW doesn't disappoint and leads to some interesting discussion. Then, whether it was the time off or just a happy coincidence, the two deliver a handful of recommendations both baseball and non-baseball related.
