Maybe spin rate isn't everything?

Dodgers SP Walker Buehler had one of the most dramatic
drops in spin rate that we've seen this season. His four-seam fastball
was down 277 rpm, his cutter was down 327 rpm, his knuckle curve was
down 339 rpm and his slider was down 289 rpm. When we've talked about
spin rate changes before this, they've been in the range of down 125-150
rpm. This is more than a 10% drop in spin rate for all of Buehler's
pitches besides the slider. And he wasn't throwing any harder to make up
for the drop in spin rate.
