  1. Pine tar for getting a better grip?

  2. I was guessing lube to help the spin off the fingers because it looks kind of slick, but who knows…

  3. How does lube work? Wouldn’t lube reduce the amount of spin he could get off his fingers?

    I ask because I know some amateur golfers who actually coat their driver club face with Vaseline before driving because it actually reduces the amount of spin that is generated (and thus straightens out their shot).

    I think pine tar sounds reasonable… although I’m sure there are lots of substances that are sticky that would suffice.

  4. I think vaseline on the driver would increase the amount of spin because you would put a small daub on the ball when you hit it, making it off-balance. Although perhaps off-balance in such a way as to reduce the spin? I dunno someone call a physics phd

  6. Hey Jon,

    Welcome to another season.

    Any chance you can figure out if Vernon Well’s bat speed is improved?

    Not only does his pitch recognition look better, but he’s getting around on pitches way better then last year. Hugely improved. I’m curious to know if his bat speed is improved of its a timing improvement elsewhere in his swing process.
