Default Strange Pitching Windups:

Of course, most pitchers now use very abbreviated windups if any at all, but there are still a few, even relievers' one starting from the stretch that keep me scratching my head.

For starting pitchers, I have always thought Kershaw's was weird...not that it's not very, very effective...just an odd-duck look to it.

And then there's Kenley Jansen, whose strange approach I did not notice until he signed with the Braves and I get to see him so often.

What in the world?

I'd love to hear the 'back-story' on how all this became his 'routine'.

Check out the windup for the Astros starter last nite, Garcia, versus the Red Sox. Remember him from last season and wow, that is some routine.

Johnny Cueto always had a lot of moving parts to his delivery.

In the early to mid 1970s, it was said that if you attended a Red Sox game that Luis Tiant pitched, at some point in the game, while in his delivery, Tiant would look directly at you.

It may not be technically part of his windup, but Craig Kimbrel's pitching is very strange.

Hideo Nomo had my favorite windup. Couldn't figure out how it worked for him, but it did.
