Stu Miller, whose head jerk makes Hideki Okajima's look like nothing. Not to mention all the other weird contortions he'd do.
Aside from Tiant, I know that Dickie Kerr (at least in the Pacific Coast League), Omar Daal, Kewpie Dick Barrett, Alay Soler, and John Pezzulo all turned at least partially around, with Barrett being the most violent.
Tiny Bonham, Van Lingle Mungo, Frank Smith (the one who pitched in the Federal League), and Claude Jonnard all had very high leg kicks a la Juan Marichal.
Steve Dalkowski's high school follow-through was absolutely bizarre.
Sam Nahem's two deliveries were actually somewhat normal, but the fact that he threw exclusively overarm to righty batters and exclusively submarine to lefties has got to be unique.
Steve Hamilton, normally a sidearmer, would lean backward really far when he delivered his "folly floater" blooper pitch (you can see this on youtube).
Adrian Hernandez, nicknamed "El Duquecito," had mechanics remarkably similar to Orlando Hernandez.
Notorious spitballer Raul Sanchez would put his body through "odd contortions" according to one period article, but I've never seen footage of him pitch.
Kelly Wunsch had arguably the world's worst follow-through to his delivery.
Joe Smith and Ehren Wassermann have extremely deceptive deliveries that involve looking like they're about to deliver submarine, but then popping back up and throwing sidearm. I've been told knuckleballer John Anderson also did this in the Minors, though the Phillies altered his mechanics in the Majors.
