Fun with Southpaws and Release Points

How far down does Shouse release a pitch?


More than a foot lower and to the left of Howell. Imagine being a lefty and going from Shouse to Howell in consecutive at-bats, or Howell to Shouse. Or anyone to Shouse. Not only are you adjusting your eye up or down, but also further away.

How about Kaz?


Granted that's a marginal difference and a random sample, but it will be interesting to see if that release point stays lower all season long.
