Alonso definitely has a good presence in the box. But just wondering: has anybody else noticed or been surprised by the little hitch in his swing? There's something he does with his hands, when the pitch is being delivered, that makes me worry about him being a bit slow to the ball, or maybe having to commit too soon to handle the off-speed stuff. Maybe it's nothing--just a timing mechanism that he has perfected--but it gave me pause.
