My first extended viewing of Peavy

And I see a Tommy John surgery coming in his future.... Reminds me a bit of the old Kerry Woods, whipping that arm so hard and falling off towards first base.

Yeah I'd say that is one of the bigger flaws w/ him and most people get a bit worried when they see it. His delivery looks to put to much stress on his shoulder/elbow, which might catch up w/ him eventually.

I'm generally one to ride out slumps, but I think I'm selling on him right now. I'm really uncomfortable with the way he's been throwing.

Guys can come back from TJ, but we're talking 2 to 3 years.... If I was in a keeper league and had him, I'd think about dealing him.

Wow, in the space of a few posts we went from a little concern about Peavy's delivery, to two frustrating years after his surgery. I guess I'll be flying my hypercraft to work Monday morning.
