Not a sox fan so just throwing out a theory here:
Doctoring the baseball means you don't have to be as fine with fastball location cause you'll get outs from movement.
Not doctoring the baseball means he has to locate better, but he's scared of throwing the ball in the zone cause he'll get hit hard lol
Just a possible thought, but regardless, it's crazy how he was basically one if the best pitchers in baseball till he got hurt last year.
