It's always interested me to know which players are willing to put in the extra effort to hone their craft. Tyler Kepner has a short piece up at his blog detailing the Yankee pitchers who've really been going the extra mile:
Hughes has also been challenging himself in early workouts with Andy Pettitte, Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy. A few other pitchers - LaTroy Hawkins, Jeff Karstens and Alan Horne - have also joined in.Since the whole Clemens/steroid story broke I've been wondering about the effectiveness of those famous workouts. We might see the difference in Pettitte this season (assuming the Giambino hasn't hooked him up).
Hughes said they've worked out almost every day since the start of camp. They start by running a mile and then doing something called "mountain climbers," followed by abdominal work, sprints and side-to-side shuttles.
