I found a nice little video of Madison Bumgarner pitching for his HS team.
Notice his extremely low, almost sidearm delivery. It does look like a natural, easy motion though, and the ball seems to explode out of his hand. The pitches look kind of dart like with lots of movement and variable movements. I guess the rap is that it can be difficult to develop secondary pitches out of that arm slot, especially breaking balls with downward movement.
I still think we should have drafted Beau Mills at #10, but I find myself getting more and more excited in anticipation of Bumgarner's coming out party in the spring. I wonder if we will seem both him and Timmy Alderson in the Augusta boxscores? I can hardly wait.
Just a reminder of Bumgarner's HS stats from 2007: 12-2, 0.99, 85 IP, 27 BB, 120 K.
