I work with a pitch f/x system to try and get as much sink as I possibly can on my pitches with my arm-slot and my talent, and hopefully get that groundball rate up around 50%, keep working on expanding my strikeout to walk ratio and keep my homeruns down. That's my gameplan. I'm shooting for a low-4 ERA/FIP, and beyond that I just hope I get lucky in a given year.... I use brooksbaseball.net--I'll throw pitches in a game every now and then in a low key, low-leverage situation where nobody in the world is paying attention to what I'm doing; I'll try a new grip, throw it. After the game, [I] check it to see what it registered on the pitch f/x, see if it was better or worse, and I'll work off of that.
