I caught a few innings of Augusta here. The Minor League Baseball site is now offering video of minor-league games, which I hadn't noticed before. I was able to watch parts of two games for free. (I'm pretty sure you have to buy a $30 subscription eventually.)
Anyway, here are some thoughts:
Madison Bumgarner looks very athletic. Tall, lean, well-built legs. He just looks like a pitcher.
Bumgarner appears to throw across his body. I've never heard anyone mention this before, so it might just be the angle of the home-plate camera. And it could be that all pitchers throw across their body slightly -- I really don't know. In Bumgarner's case, he appears to step slightly toward the left-handed batter's box in his delivery. Does anyone think this is a big deal?
Waldis Joaquin looks a little soft around the middle. He's not the long-and-lean type. Not that it matters necessarily. He throws straight over the top, with a fairly short stride to the plate.
Angel Villalona is a big guy, but probably not excessively so. He looks powerfully built, though a little big around the waist.
I suspect some of the prospect watchers here might be interested in getting the Milb.tv package. Could be a great way to get extra looks at our youngsters.
