Pic of the Week

Jered Weaver delivers a pitch during
his no-hitter Wednesday night against the Twins.

I selected this one partly because of the no-hitter, and partly because, even after years of looking at photos of pitchers frozen in mid-delivery, I remain amazed at the elasticity required.

Obviously, no pitcher contorts his arm into such a pose and holds it. But they get to such unlikely positions and through them dozens of times a game.

It's not a wonder there are are so many arm injuries. It's a wonder there aren't more.
