This thread is lame.

I hate the injury assumption.

That said, yeah, probably the stuff to be a future Cy Young Winner.

He'll definitely win a Cy Young before Tommy John does again. John's not looking quite as good as he did earlier in his career. ;)

I don't know man, it just seems like the league isn't hitting him at all anymore.

Serious consideration is needed.

The delivery/injury relationship is overrated. Lots of guys with the smoothest of deliveries have had injury problems - roger clemens (shoulder), randy wolf (elbow), mark prior (too many to count). My understanding is that most of the evidence stating that an awkward looking delivery leads to injury is anecdotal. He does have Cy Young stuff however.

1989, man. 1989.

The last time someone got a hit off TJ, the OLD Bush was in office.

Think about that. Just think about it.
