Gervacio throws weird

Sam Gervacio's throwing motion is weird, and so is Gervacio, apparently.

The newest move in the dance craze that is sure to sweep Houston should Gervacio emerge as an Astros regular is a bizarre staredown with the baseball.

The righthander holds the ball out with his pitching hand, stares at it for a pronounced second, then translates his stare in an equally exaggerated manner toward the plate.

“That works for him, so count me in. It's the old ‘you don't fix what's not broken,' and until they show you that they're broken or they're down and out and it just isn't working anymore, I won't put a hand on him.”
