Tidbit on Cabrera and Olsen on THT

Just passing along this observation from The Hardball Times. The loss in velocity isn't news, but I hadn't seen it broken down this way:
The signings of Olsen and Cabrera give the Nationals the distinction of having two of the top five biggest losers of fastball velocity from ’07 to ’08. Here's the list of the five pitchers who saw the greatest decrease:
Scott Olsen: -2.6%
Dan Wheeler: -2.0%
Tom Glavine: -1.8%
Francisco Rodriguez: -1.8%
Daniel Cabrera: -1.8%
