He threw 213 innings last year and is on pace for about 225 this year.....and I do believe he got stronger as the season went on last year (something like 7-1 in the second half). He has now thrown back to back complete games! This might be the beginning of him going Randy Johnson on the rest of the league.
Am I the only one who remembers that the astronomical pitch counts that Jim Riggleman allowed for Kerry Wood several years ago were determined to be a HUGE contributing factor to his Tommy John surgery at the end of that year (and also to Riggleman's firing)?
If I was a Wood or Prior owner, I would be very very afraid.
