Taking the hill



Today we're talking about pitching. Not the Cardinal rotation, though. This time, we're talking about how to get there. Former Cards pitcher and Double-A pitching instructor Jason Simontacchi joins J.J. on the podcast along with minor league beat writer Mike Bailey, and the three talk about how you shape a promising young arm. How do you look at mechanics? What separates the guys that make it from those who don't? What do you need to know at each level along the way? They also take an in-depth look at some young arms in the system, and evaluate their evolution. Sit back, plug in and enjoy!
