HomeRunBaker said:What about him? His throwing problems aren't remotely close to being grouped with those who lost their careers due to a mental block of throwing a baseball. Who was the catcher that couldn't throw the ball back to the pitcher? He's another one whose career ended due to "Steve Blass Disease."
I may be pinked, but as I mentioned upthread, Daniel Bard is someone who overcame the inability to throw strikes.
2007: 75 IP, 78 BB, 8 HBP, 27 wild pitches
I'm not saying he's likely to overcome it once again, but this isn't the first time in his pro career that he's lost the ability to throw strikes.
