I think Tom Browning had a career ending broken arm while throwing a pitch.

He did it TWICE! Saw this Outside the Lines piece on him. Watching that footage is one of the grossest things I've ever seen. You can hear the pop as he follows through and then he's just on the ground screaming in pain. They showed him last attempting a comeback in the O's system.

Little side fact: The only pitchers to ever break their arm pitching were all left-handed. At least, that's what the guy on the TV said.

A guy in my league has Schmidt, Sheets, Harden, Wood and Mota. Tell me THAT doesn't suck.

He also has F-Rod who might be heading to the DL also.

Bummer. :-t

That's a tad worse than my Sheets/Schmidt/Od. Perez/Thomson

Yep. So far, there's a few people who have my Schilling/Schmidt/Thomson/Mota combo of death beaten.
