    Tommy John surgery. What a blow. Only Framber remains from last years rotation

    Unfortunate, especially since it looked like he figured things out in his last 2 games.

    Possible to trade Abreu for Verlander and Yuli?

    I was afraid of this. Maybe we apply to get reinstated next year.

    Yeah, bad news indeed, but we have a long season ahead of us. Let's see how things shake out.

    Bummer! Luis should have been allowed to keep rocking the baby. I blame mlb and their pitch clock which adds extra stress on the pitchers. I’m joking! (*pending data from this year and injuries to pitchers)

    Do we blame wbc or short pitch clock? Both could cause injuries

    His pitching mechanics always reminded me of Mark Prior and Stephen Strasburg. Just saying.

    It's how they load their bodies, and move their arms pre-pitch.

    Compare to Justin Verlander, Framber Valdez, and Zack Greinke. Something just looks different.

    Brent Strom is missed on the Astros

    6:20 Onward Bartolo Colon 20 year Career, Healthy Arm

    Mark Prior Short Career, Arm Injuries
