Fangraphs: Pedro Martinez on the Art and Science of Pitching

Pitching is feel. Your hand and the ball is a marriage that should never end. The pitcher and the ball should be married forever. Hands, fingers, the ball – they should be married forever. It’s like caressing your wife. It’s touching and getting that feel to know her, alone.

I don’t care if you are Pedro Martinez, stay away from my wife.
