    It's really not. I read an article last month with interviews from a couple scouts and gm's and they were saying how they basically expect a successful pitcher to tear their ucl once during their career. The issue is more mental than anything. Now, it's a different story if you have more than one or the dreaded shoulder problems.

      I wish Mark Prior's problems had been mere TJ surgery....he'd probably still be a ML pitcher if that was it...a damn good one too.

      • When we asked him [Bill James] which was the next market inefficiency that teams could exploit this offseason, he dryly suggested "just watch what the [post-Minaya] Mets do."

        • If the Yankees sign Crawford, does that mean Curtis Granderson gets traded?

          I'd love to see him back in a Tigers uniform.

            kind of feel like the D'Backs are selling low, don't know much about the O's guys though
            Selling low is an understatement.

                depends on the type of TJ surgery. if it's a complete tear, you come back as strong or better. if it's a partial tear, you might never be the same.

                        I'm pretty sure it was a complete tear.

I suppose if Dominic Brown turns out to be a star, they could keep things going but ehh....

                            The braves should be able to pass the Phillies very very soon, maybe in 2011 considering how absurd their pitching depth is. The Mets are finally being run better, but they're situation is still kind of a mess, and I can't really predict the Marlins because of how ******** their movies this offseason have been...

                            And now back to my point about the Nationals. They have a franchise cornerstone (Zimmerman), the best prospect in baseball (Harper) who has ******* ridiculous power and will alone start drawing fans to the stadium, an exceptional pitcher (Strasburg) and now have laid the seeds for free agents to start coming to the city. I think the Werth deal is absolutely insane, but it's something of a message to the rest of the MLB and the fans in DC that they are going to do what it takes to compete. If Strasburg remains healthy and Harper blows through the minors, I see no reason why they can't compete in 2012 or 2013, and Werth should still have something left in the tank at that point.

                            • How exactly does Werth fill seats? He's a very good player but he's not really that big of a name and leaving CBP is going to hurt his numbers also even though he does well in Nats stadium.

                              As for the Mets spending money just to spend is a terrible idea. If the Mets put a winner on the field the fans will be there regardless of the payroll. Our new staff aren't a bunch of morons.
