While I do like Peavy a lot of as a pitcher and his stuff is also quite good. I have to agree with the point that was made on his delivery. All pitcher will be prone to injury, but some are more prone then others. Unless Peavy can make adjustments to his delivery, there is still a higher chance than most SP's that he could have future arm problems.

Personally, I like the way his motion looks after watching him over the last few games but, I certianly could be looking at the wrong things.

I didn't say he was bashing him, but anyone (in general).
There's a certain individual here (who will remain nameless) will say something such as the league still hasn't adjusted to him -- which is total nonsense.
Peavy's done nothing but put up great #'s for a pitcher his age. Even if he goes to a 3.20 ERA and 1.20 WHIP next year, that's still better than over 90% of the league's starting pitchers -- that's how solid he's been this year.
