I included this photo because this guy, Shunsuke Watanabe, has the strangest delivery I have ever seen. He balks on every pitch from the stretch, but the unpires aren't calling it. He comes set, then lifts up his front foot and sets it right back down BEFORE he starts his delivery. It's almost like Robb Nen's toe tap....except he does it not during his delivery, but right before he starts his delivery. And his motion from the windup absolutely defies description. I wouldn't even attempt to describe it. I wish I had a mini-cam to film and post it. Strangest thing I have ever seen. It has to be on the internet someplace. If anyone can find it, let me know the location and I will attempt to post it here.
