Interesting article from Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci talks about how Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan works his magic.
Duncan has been part of several successful (and failed) reclamation projects during his 31 years in baseball. Chris Carpenter and Kyle Lohse are two success stories, Carpenter more so than Lohse. But there’s no doubt having someone like Duncan around to mentor you, even when you’ve been around the block many times, can’t hurt.
And it’s clearly working for Penny who is 2-0 and on pace to have some of the best numbers of his career.
