I'd think throwing that hard would be awful on your elbow. He'll probably blow it out..not this year but sometime
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Who does he pitch for and any chance of him closing this year?

If he closes, there is a lot less of a chance that will happen.
;-D

I've actually never seen him pitch, is his delivery smooth, or does it look like he is exerting a lot of energy to throw his fastball at that speed?

Thought you guys might find this interesting... Leyland told him that Zumaya would be the closer on Sunday. With so many young arms stepping in right away into the role, I wouldn't be surprised if he get the job before the season is over.

He had a very jerky delivery in the low minors that precipitated his move to the pen when the Tigers broke camp this Spring. He has changed his mechanics along the way and doesn't look like he is working all that hard to produce these pitches. He's not a smooth as Verlander, but he doesn't seem to be straining.

Oopah, any Zoom Zoom owner is a giddy owner. Just the way it is. I am in a HOLDS league and he is pure platinum. In my other league, a keeper, a guy drafted him right before I wanted him. But the guy dropped him before the season started for Juan Uribe. Bwa ha ha haaa!

And to anyone who thinks he'll be a starter someday. Just ask yourself why such a talent would be put in the 'pen in the first place. Future closer.

I heard that his success in 05 was due to the corrected mechanics.

Very nice, I'd be worried about his long-term health if it weren't for what you just told me. :-)
