Dave Righetti: “It’s Really A Different Touch…Different Look” For Matt Cain

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti joined us Friday before the Giants opened their series with the Dodgers in part 1 of a 2 part conversation.


Righetti talked to The Sports Virus about Matt Cain reinventing himself: …“He was going to get hit this spring (training) but I didn’t care. I didn’t want him walking people, I wanted him get used to his 2-seamer…(After Arizona spring training) where the ball won’t move at all, his stuff was going to be a little bit better once we hit San Francisco, I knew that for sure. You still need success when you’re trying something, in his mind it was new. You still want to see something positive out of it so he can build on that and he did…It’s really a different touch. A slower curveball, more separation in his speeds, movement on his fastball on both sides of the plate. He’s giving these guys a little bit different look.”
