Wasn't it actually elbow surgery, the SP's right of passage these days: Tommy John surgery.
I have pretty high expectations for AJ next year. As long as he stays healthy I have no doubt that he will have over 200 K next season. I still think he is one of the most talented pitchers out there. I don't think he did anything to disprove that during the last few months of 2004.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
