I disagree with your assessment. While I believe there was SOME adjustment issues IMO his principal problem was that HE JUST GOT TIRED. After Buck gave him a rest and pep talk he returned to form over the last few games of the season and the playoffs.
Pitching is legs, legs, legs. Pedro was an IF who converted to a pitcher. Workout routines for the two positions are very different. Once Pedro understands that he needs to build strength and endurance in his legs he shouldn't fade like that again.
