Jeter. All out, all the time. And I'm not even a Yankees fan.

It's not the herk-jerk motion, it's the specific movement of the arm and the stress on the elbow that it causes. Anybody's arm at that level can just blow at any time, don't get me wrong. But this one spot that he gets to is almost a guaranteed chronic elbow problem. It's the difference between using your body to generate velocity and snapping your arm to generate the velocity. It is way too late to fix it now, to be honest, because it would mean a completely new throwing motion. You can't 'tweak' and fix this one.

He has the same mechanical flaws that doomed Prior and Wood - the 'upside down W'. When he separates, instead of getting his hand and the ball up and behind him, he pinches his back to gain velocity, and leaves his hand below his elbow, then snaps it into place. I cringe every time I watch him throw, and, unfortunately, there's a really good chance his elbow won't hold up.
