    Madson mechanics

    Really, really good mechanics. Solid.

    Sweet!

    Can't believe the pitching staff Walt has put together

    Nice post, Randy. I agree that Madson has nice mechanics. This video is a good example of how stay balanced, keep the shoulders level, and not open up too early. Madson also has a really nice stride and follow through.

    It must be because of poor strategic planning by Boras that the guy was available so late. I'm glad Jocketty pulled this one off.

    You mean the pitch slows down, right? The video is in slow motion. His change is awesome.

    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
