Maybe Duncan's Just Too Busy?

Adam Wainwright has discovered a flaw in his delivery, and will shortly be back to perennial Cy Young contender form. He and Chris Carpenter, papier mache ace extraordinaire, were looking at some video yesterday, and, wonder of wonders, they found out what was wrong with Adam's mechanics! 

I'm a little curious, though: where was Dave Duncan in all of this? 

According to the article in question, Wainwright has apparently been pitching from too high of an arm slot this season, to the tune of four to five inches higher than usual. Now, I'm no pitching coach, nor have I been anywhere near a Holiday Inn Express lately, but that sounds like a fairly large difference. 

To be fair,
"Hello, Ladies. I'm Adam Wainwright's old arm slot. Now, I believe one of you called a plumber?"

Then again, maybe Duncan is just too damned busy, what with carrying a twenty man pitching staff and all. I mean, it certainly can't be easy trying to fix
