Your scaps look better, from what I can tell.  If I was you I would work on separating my front shoulder from my front hip, by landing with my front shoulder behind my front hip.  Some guys do this very evidently, but some guys dont.  Look for pictures of Sam Mcdowell and Sandy Koufax going into landing.  They have their front shoulder pulled back so hard from the front hip that their abdomen stretches really deep into the core.  Their lower abdomen is clearly coiled.  Some guys get good coil through their chest, but not their actual stomach which is why I believe that they cant throw as hard.  You look good with your back hip action, but your force vector and posture look funny and it makes me think that this is the way you get your hip (back hip) involved like you do.  

I like to think about stretching my core, and pulling back from my front hip with my front shoulder.  Then when I am about to land, I think about forcing my back hip in front and keeping both my front and back shoulder behind (this doesnt mean that Im not driving or trying to drive).  I get about 50 degrees of separation, and I get over my front side with a stable front leg.  I only stride about 85-90% my height (depending on the mound quality), and my elbow leaks a little in front of my face.

Kevin,

 

Been talking with chris and letting him know that you should add your tilt back into your delivery. I believe with your increased power from your increase in power clean weight you should be throwing harder. Also watch your front leg rotating a little to early it is causing a slight valgus load on your back leg. I like what greg was saying above we refer to this as tilt you know this from working down here all summer.

Yeah, definitely add the tilt back to your delivery.  Just be careful how you add it.  If you just tilt toward first base, you wont get as much separation.   If you just tilt toward second base, it will hurt your delivery/stride.  If you tilt toward first and second base at the same time, you will  increase your ability to get more core torque.  Like I said, you get your back hip to open nicely, your front shoulder just stays to attached to your front hip.  Hope this helps.

Kevin,

 

10 to 30 degrees of tilt toward 1st base for a right hander toward 3rd base for a left hander is optimal.
