I grew up in Arvada outside of Denver, where my parents have lived in the same house for more than 30 years, went to school in Utah, moved here to the San Francisco area after graduation. I've been a Rockies fan from the start, and am a baseball fan in general.

Short of them publishing a blueprint of exactly how they are teaching pitchers (which of course no team would do), I don't think we really know
