Maybe look at films when he started to pitch bad and they might see something that he is doing and doesn´t realize it. Tipping his pitches is what I mean.

I doubt Sevy will be the receipient of the Cy Young Award and that is a shame since before his troubles I thought he had no peer.

You don't think they've looked at the films already?  This is 6 games ... they've looked at the films ... and if he were tipping his pitches they would know it already.

I think the league has caught up to his fastball, and they are laying off his curve (which lately he has been missing with). I think Sevy may need to develop a 3rd pitch to go to, maybe a dominant changeup that will put the hitters off balance for when he follows it up with his fastball...whatever he needs to do, I think it's time Rothschild realizes Sevy can't continue using the same formula he was before, because the league has adjusted to him. Time for him to adjust back.

He's already got a third pitch, but his command hasn't been good the last five-six games, I don't care what pitches you have if you can't command them they're going to get hit after all these are major league players...

You have a point, and you should send a message to Rothchild and have him try what you just said. You might be the guru that can bring Sevy back to his excellent pitching. If that does not worlk bring in a Brujero because he needs fixing quick!

If he is not tipping his pitches, we are in trouble.

    I think it is interesting that despite the obsession the Yankees have with getting position players enough rest, they are good with Severino's workload.

   How come no one ever worried about Mariano Rivera "tipping" his pitches ?

Mariano basically for most his years used the one pitch, the cutter ... a batter doesn't need to know what's coming ... the cutter is coming.

What a gift Mo had. I'd like to know how many other pitchers threw basically one pitch, that the batters knew was coming, yet they couldn't do anything with (besides breaking their bat that is! LOL).

The only other guys like that I've seen have been knuckleballers.   Not even the pitcher knows exactly what that pitch will do so you only need the one.   I got to see both Neikros (albeit late in their careers) and that was fun.   Wouldn't mind another Yankee knuckleballer emerging soon.

The amazing thing with Mo is he was even better before the cutter came along.  He was a high octane, upper 90s fastball strikeout type in 1996 and he was simply unreal that year.   Fastball after fastball that just seemed to magically rise and explode in the strike zone - I think the Twins manager said he belonged in a league above the majors that year.
