The most interesting part is the back and forth between him and Eiland. Eiland wants him to stop throwing the cutter so much. Says it's affecting his other pitches. Says he has too many pitches and he needs to simplify it down to 3-4. Hochevar notes that batters hit .170 against his cutter. He also sounds like he's sick of everyone tinkering with everything he does.
interesting. i remember listening to Hoch on the radio after one of his decent games back in late June i think? They were talking about this same thing basically...tinkering with his mechanics......he didnt sound very pleased, and to be honest, i hated his attitude.
I hope the Royals just decide to cut their losses with this turd.
