And I already poked holes in age being a factor when I brought up Christian Garcia as an example of a young pitcher whoís career was derailed by two Tommy Johns . The reason why itís happening to younger pitchers too is because how they throw and how many innings they threw in the minors and long before that . Not age so try again. If age was truly a factor you wouldnít be seeing so many pitchers getting Tommy Johns before the age of 30 these days .

    It's not age? Then pitchers are getting younger each year? Age isn't a factor? He didn't say age was the cause. You didn't read. If the concept that a pitcher's age and recovery have a correlation is too far over your head to grasp, so be it.
    The majority of TJ were on kids under the age of 20. Tallion was 22 when he had his first, so that is not the average, that is old for the first one. He was 27 for the next one. He was older. The ability to heal diminishes. Not significantly but enough to affect a recovery. The tissue they use to repair the arm, is older. Age matters.

    If wear and tear has a factor, so does age. Recovery is affected by age.

    True, but again tho, after the first inning they did very little. And seemed to be sleepwalking against a minor league pitcher.

    They blew a bunch of chances. I think 14 left on?
    10 ks vs those pitchers was bad.

    They did have a big 1st inning. They scored 4 runs and a 3 run first on Saturday. You should be happy with that but of course you're not Amazing. I'll take a 3 or 4 run first inning every day of the week.

    I for one am sick and tired of wasting season after season waiting on unproven prospects to see how they pan out . Itís an endless cycle that mostly leads nowhere


    So teams should just forget about their up and coming players. That sounds like a very STUPID idea.

    Seems like Frazier has really improved his defense. He's made some really great catches.

    It BASICALLY won the game? LOL!!!

If Cole, Kluber, or even German started today the Yankees wouldíve won after being spotted 4 runs in the first. Oh well, on to Texas.

    So you expect them to beat the Orioles every game they play? While that would be nice, it's not how the real world works. The Orioles are going to win games, like it or not.

    And I'd love to know how you know they would have won if someone else started. That's quite a talent you have. I once saw Clemens blow a 9 run lead against the Yankees. You NEVER know what's going to happen in a game, regardless of who's pitching.
