    Weinhardt's delivery looks clean. Much more controlled than I thought it would be.

    AFL Championship Game

    The Peoria Javelinas will be playing in the AFL Championship game this Saturday. See AFL strike out leader Robbie Weinhardt and other Tigers on the MLB Network and MLB.tv. The game is at 2:45 ET. By that point OSU should be rolling over Michigan so if you need a diversion, see a couple guys who could be helping the Tigers next year finish up their fall season.

    I see Casper Wells is of the Jeff Larish school of batting stances.

    I was thinking more Brandon Inge'sh, and it wasn't just the number, but something a little more obvious.

    Casper's got a little of the ARod body movement there.

    Yes, the judges confirm.

    I will say though, after watching it again.........if someone were to tell me this is footage of a young Inge.........I might actually believe them.
    The mannerisms are the same. The body type from that age is similar. The swing is close. He makes the dramatic pose when missing (ala Inge, Arod)......Adjusts a little too frequently. Doesn't Inge wear his socks the same way??

    Eerie.

    Nice videos. Wells' swing actually looks reasonably compact to me, check out the one he fouled off?

    Physically, he resembles Denny McLain.
