Tommy Hanson Pitching Mechanics

As most of you know, I think that Tommy Hanson has been a bit over hyped, and he'll struggle for a few years in the majors before putting it all together. DriveLineMechanics.com has an interesting breakdown of his mechanics. Good arm action, but his finish leaves his release point high in my opinion, which helps explain his low GB% (the dominant and glaring weakness in his game).

Haha, after a semester, you are still not a believer!

Hope everything is going well. Getting an A in med school is hazardous to my health.

Hey James, good to hear from you. Chasing those A's can definitely wear you down, but hey, it's worth it in the end, right?

As for Hanson, I'll be a believer in about 4 or 5 years. Until then, I'll just have to settle for Derek Lowe and Javier Vazquez I guess.

Good luck with med school!

You sir are an idiot. Hanson is the man. Go write reviews for books or something because you obviously can't do this. I hope you are in my fantasy league because I would destroy you.
