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

Actually they are starting to find that if a pitcher follows the pre set rehab program ... that yes the are stronger.
would it make you feel better guys if he only pitched 119 pitches the last two games out? Maybe he could just cut back on his warmup pitches at the beginning of the game to help compensate for the extra innings that were officially "IP". Maybe if he only through three warmup pitches in between innings, well then he could go 150 pitches. Know what I mean.
Pitch counts don't meam .... Bleep. When they put a "Pitcho'meter" on there arms to track ALL their pitches, bullpen, warmup and thows to first for their entire career, then we can talk.
