Verducci had a good article on the regression from the "workhorse" guys a few years ago. Pitchers like Halladay and Sabathia. They all break down, I hope the Dodgers think the team and Kershaw is special and this wont affect them.
Is this the Verducci Effect, or something different? The Verducci Effect has been pretty much debunked.
I think power pitchers do eventually slow down, but if they figure out how to switch up, they do okay. We'll see if Sabathia can. Halladay did.
