What I have my pitchers do is, ala Greg Maddux, Nolan Ryan, and Roger Clemens, break their hands with their hands (not their elbows) and keep their PAS hand more level with, if not slightly above, the level of their PAS elbow.

 Has Greg Maddux employed the “Bagwell gambit” in his career
The other six HRs don’t appear to be ones that Maddux would have intentionally allowed to set up Bagwell for a later date since the score was close or it was early in the game.
If Maddux was setting up hitters to look for certain pitches, it again does not appear that he was fooling them (at least not any more than he normally fools hitters).
All in all, the evidence does not seem to support the idea that Maddux employs the “Bagwell gambit.” If he did, we would see some unusual improvement in his performance in close and late situations and in NL playoff games.

 No. 2: Greg Maddux - Braves Journal
One way to appreciate the greatness of Greg Maddux is to look at how he was able to make other great pitchers, like Glavine and Smoltz, seem ordinary by comparison.
Maddux was the Cubs’ second-round pick in the 1984 draft, which means he was pretty high up there, 31st overall, which would make him a sandwich pick today.
It probably cost Maddux several wins and maybe an additional Cy Young in 1998, when he outpitched Glavine but had three fewer wins to show for it… Maddux is slightly overrated as a hitter.
