    I think Zumaya's elbow finally exploded







    Sad to see, but it's not normal to throw 102 mph.

    It is really amazing when we think about what a pitchers arm goes through in the course of a game/career. The fact that more of this doesnt happen is surprising. Thats why a guy like Jaime Moyer or Randy Johnson are incredible specimens for pitching so long.

    This wasnt quite as bad as the Dave Dravecky situation but you feel bad for Zumaya none the less!!

    Considering I had a pitch clocked at 50 mph this weekend and felt like I threw my arm off I appreciate how long it took till his exploded.

    The good ones say they can hear the seams whistling as it heads towards home plate

    I believe it. I played softball with a kid who played college baseball and went to cut him off on a ball hit to center and he threw a laser past my head on one hop to the catcher. The ball looked like an oval as it went whistling by me.

    I think you had a faulty gun, because my 10 year old throws 55-60 miles an hour, while he is one of the faster kids, he is not unhittable.

    You can hear hear the seams whistle on his throws, so I can't imagine what they do on a 100 mph fastball

    Definitely sad. I wonder if he'll ever approach what he was was.

    I hope it was faulty but my lack of throwing, horrible mechanics, and no experience of pitching firsthand lead me to believe its accurate...which is pathetic.

    I got some work to do.

    Tigers' Joel Zumaya out for season with fractured elbow



    Tigers reliever Joel Zumaya suffered a non-displaced fracture of the olecranon while throwing a pitch during Detroit's game against the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.

    The olecranon is the tip or "bony" point of the elbow.
    Zumaya's injury was diagnosed with X-rays and an MRI on Tuesday. He will not pitch the remainder of the season.

    Wow. How the heck do you break that bone?!? That sounds more like a football injury. This kid threw 100+MPH on a regular basis and has always been a max. effort type of pitcher. Makes me wonder how Nolan Ryan survived throwing so hard for so long. I hope he recovers

    i hope he recovers too. he is my favorite tiger player. a friend of mine said he wouldnt be surprised if zumaya had to retire... i dont know about that, but i dont know if he will be the same pitcher.

    A broken bone sounds like a blessing in disguise, IMO.

    I'm not doctor, but Bones seem to heal better then Ligaments do.

    Pirates? I think he'd rather break his other elbow.

    If your motion is that violent that you break a bone in your elbow, you probably are not coming back to full stregnth.
