I can see how it could be misaligned But i dont know from what. It pops every now and then.... usually from doing extreme movements (ie Heavy lifting, extreme extending of the arm, etc.)
You're thinking of tendons. Though tendonitis is definitely something to consider. Ligaments are tissue that connect bone to bone (ie in this case your ulna and radius). If the ligament isn't holding the two proximal ends together correctly, your forearm won't articulate properly within the fossa in your humerus. Your "extreme movements" may be stretching your ligaments and causing your ulna and radius to not articulate properly within the humerus.
Seriously though, there are so many possible things. Don't take action on account from something you heard from someone on the internet. Go see your doctor and go easy on the pitching until you do.
