If people are wondering what's the difference between last year's Berrios and this year's edition, it looks like he has changed a few things.

 

First, it looks like he has shortened his stride to let his pitches get a better down plane. Second, his mechanics look more consistent. Third, his escape from the 3rd inning of his first start showed that he has learned not to implode after a couple things go wrong. That allowed his teammates to rally in the next inning, and then Berrios regained his confidence and kept a very good Indians team quiet for another few innings. 

 

Plus, of course, he changed the brand of grease he's using on the ball. It's not quite as slippery, works great as a hair conditioner...and it's a floor wax!!
