Harden doesn't have a violent delivery, he has an easy delivery. As does Mark Prior. Zambrano, Oswalt are among guys that have violent deliveries and no injury histories. Not really a good indicator of being injury prone.
Homer's delivery IS pretty, however.

Everyone is physically different and a "smooth" delivery for one pitcher might be awkward for another and visa versa. I personally don't think there's anything wrong with or particularly unusual about Lincecum's supposedly "unorthodox," "unusual," or "awkward" delivery. I think that's just manufactured bunk to generate news coverage and interest. Overall, the whole "delivery" thing just gives sportswriters and fans one more thing to pretend to analyze and argue over, but otherwise is far down on the list of contributors to a pitcher's success. In terms of fantasy value I think it means absolutely nothing.
Between the guy with the "smooth" delivery and the guy with the "awkward" delivery, I'd much rather have the guy throwing strikes and getting guys out.

Currently making a deal that will improve my squad for the time being emensly, Its a no brainer being a Money league, I WANT TO WIN (trade is posted in the other forum) thing is I got both Bailey and Lincecum, Who has the better future? Bailey did look good against the A's the other night. Should I be moving Bailey instead of Lincecum, or is it a toss up?
