Enough said.
To be fair I hope he is. He needs the protein to recover from all the failing at life he does.

Hmm...I can see that. His rear femur/knee still move forward under him in his FH shot, so is some of this maybe due to the direction of the counter/shift and how centered you are in a rear arm FH swing vs. being more closed and the arm releasing earlier in a lead arm BH swing? Like I'm thinking a rear arm swing as in FH is more similar to a two handed baseball swing, and many pro batters have a similar thing going on with their rear toes essentially staying in the same place in space but the heel and knee move more targetward.

Going by feel, if I keep my rear toes in a similar place in FH it makes my torso swing forward way more kind of like how Eagle is so tilted. Whereas when I let my rear foot come forward as I normally do in my throw, I feel more upright since my leg isn't way back there needing to be counterbalanced with my body forward.

Eagle always looks like he is throwing really hard with a lot of arm action and his rear knee doesn't really move forward behind the front knee like you see in Rick and Walter Johnson and me.
