Man, oh man. Remember I'd found a new favorite website?

Well check out the work they did breaking down Kei Igawa:

I really do not think, nor do many baseball people, that [Igawa's] problems stem from a lack of weapons in his arsenal.
Whether Kei Igawa’s current mechanics are what worked for him in Japan I don’t know. What I do know, however, is that what he does now will make it very difficult for him to ever get the ball down in the strike zone against big league hitters.
Bottom line: Kei Igawa never fully transfers his weight over his front leg [because his stride is too long].
I won't copy and paste over their entire article, but click the link to see a point by point breakdown of what Igawa is doing right and wrong.

What a great article.
