Listened to Hirshiser give a pretty detailed

By: Torpedoman

shop talk session recently about just that.. Bud Blacks totally different philosophy on handling his Rockies staff, almost as two pitching staffs, including the different goals/targets on their between starts workouts to specifically prepare for the individuals next start and it's game plan. Things like moving away from most diets of breaking pitches at home, as at least a strategy to take advantage of the home field characteristics.  This is his 1st season at Coors.. obviously a different approach. Granted altitude has its different affects, but the Rockies never were noted as doing anything strategically different, to use that to their advantage. I just shared that because it was out there from a game telecast, and it was of interest to me.
