    Yankees were hanging by a thread with Tanaka lighting it up. If he's out for an extended period of time it's over johnny.

    Damn that sucks. So sad to see a player to go down while they are dominating.

    Partially torn UCL. Will undergo 6 weeks of nonsurgical rehab. If it doesn't heal, Tommy John surgery likely the next step. What a ****ing shame.

    Matt Harvey too. This seems more common than catching a cold. What gives?

    Sliders. It's becoming more and more popular each year and TJ surgeries continue to rise. May be a coincidence, but I think it plays a big part.

    Yep. And kids start throwing them young and many play year round. I heard an interview with Rick Peterson and he said that since players have started lifting weights and gaining mass it makes it hard for the tendons to support the muscles. Our tendons aren't designed to withstand that much torque.

    I also read somewhere once that the pitching motion itself is very unnatural for the human body.

    Absolutely is. Softball motion causes little to no arm issues.

    How any GM in today's MLB throws anything more than a 3 year deal at a starting pitcher anymore is beyond my understanding. SP is becoming baseball's version of the running back position only more risky.

    That really stinks. He was a joy to watch like Matt Harvey. Two young pitchers!
