"I couldn't take my eyes off CC," Snell recalled. "And you know what? The more I watched, the more I knew what I had to do."[...]
"Watching CC, he used his fastball command to set up the slider, rather than vice versa," Snell said. "Well, I put my fastball where I wanted, and everything else happened."
As a Pirate fan, I think it's awesome that Snell finally managed to get some of his form back. As a geek, I think it's really cool that he used his phone for such a cool purpose. And as a cynic, I'm a little curious as to why pitching coach Jeff Andrews never bothered to tell Snell that maybe he should use his 96 mph fastball from time to time. How can a coach not see what a pitcher figures from watching baseball on his iPhone?
