Silva's Sinker

  What's with Silva and the sinker?

     Man, I thought this was my first post. Checked my profile and found that I had one some time ago.  This memory gone like the Twins' poor play of several months ago.
     I guess it's time I take another shot at it.
    A question which has puzzled me for some time is with Silva's sinker.  
    How does a guy lose it after it was his money pitch for so long?  He forgot how to grip it?  This isn't some trick pitch like a knuckler which may come and go sometimes unexplained. He must have thrown thousands in his career and should be intimate with it.
     How could he and Anderson let it go unrepaired for so long when a simple change in the grip was the apparent remedy?
   This damn near cost Silva his starting job.  Probably would have if not for injuries to other starters.  
      Hard to fathom.
      Apparently, it's back.   Last night, according to Gardy,  "eight changeups, eight sliders and seventy-five fastballs".
    He looked like the Silva of the last couple years,  lots of groundballs, throwing strikes.
