I caught the first inning of the replay before I left, and it was definently Wood pitching. I'm pretty sure it was the home opener, which I know was televised and Wood was on the mound.

    Anyways, that neither here nor there, more courious about his throwing motion and if anyone else noticed the jerk right before his delivery. If it was there, is it anything to be concerned about? I guess watch him tonight, and see if you notice it. It could have been a one time thing, could have been the TV angle, or perhaps I was just seeing something that wasn't really there. I'm not even sure if its something to be concerned about.

    Aaaah, I understand now.

    Having seen him pitch in the game I attended, I believe he had a "pause" in his delivery, but I didn't notice a jerking motion. I'll watch the game tonight to see if I see anything.

    Below is a link to where you can watch a video of Travis Wood's delivery. I didn't notice anything too bad in his delivery. In fact, his delivery sort of reminds me of a left-handed Roy Oswalt.

    Red Leader, a pause is a better way to describe it. Like I said, I'm certainly no talent evaluator, but it sounds like its nothing to worry about.

    Thanks

    Scroll down to the bottom where it says Travis Wood, look to the far right and click on either 56K or 350K, whatever works better for you.

    Didn't see anything in his delivery in that video that would cause concern. I will say that his curve ball has come a long way since that video was filmed. Glad he's still working on it though, because if he can get that to a major league average pitch, he'll move quickly. His fastball has good movement, and his change is already a plus pitch.

    I like the mechanics, myself. Looks good.

    He dropped a couple really good looking curveballs. It obviously wasn't as good, but had the same sort of break as Zach Duke. That's at least an average pitch.
