Ryan Zimmerman is injured.  HE SHOULD NOT BE PLAYING!

Probably just a bluff, he likes to do that.

Right this is true, but there are also studies out there that correlate high pitch counts with injury.  The thing is, the correlation is even greater the faster the pitcher throws.  So a guy like Lannan or Livo that is conditioned in the minors is a whole lot less troublesome than a guy like Jimenez or Strasburg.

I've actually read the opposite about pitch counts. Even flame throwers. There hasn't been a decline in injuries at all since teams started putting their pitchers on pitch counts.

I wouldn't put Lannan and Livan in the same category. One just doesn't throw very hard, but he puts his all into his pitches, while the other just lobs the ball. :lol:

I would have loved to have seen Nolan Ryan's 230+ pitch game back in the '70s.

Half kididng.  Would've been insane if he really did.

Ugh, stupid "baseball fans" at Nats Park made me think that was going out. :bang:

It was actually a good move.  I hope they don't play him for a few days, though.

Oh well. Let's just hope Bruce Allen doesn't freak up tonight. Only the Skins could screw up the 4th pick in the draft when they have a definite need and the right player will fall into their lap.

He should be on the DL and being AGGRESSIVELY treated.  He should be sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber!

Probably outdated material.  I keep up big time with this type of stuff and that line of thinking was touted by kinesologists of the 1970s and 1980s.  Most new school research will support what I posted in the last post.  Mechanics is definitely the most importance in predicting future injuries.  Secondary is pitch counts and power vs finesse.  Though I would be interested in reading over the studies that you talk of, if you can point me in the right direction I can access them.

I'm interested to see how Nolan Ryan's experiment works out.  Pretty promising right now, but it takes a year or two for these things to kick in.

Hell yeah. 13 innings. I think he walked 10+. 19 or 20 Ks. Awesome.

No way the Lerners approve financing that crap.   :lol:

How so?  By definition, one loss MUST be the worst loss of the season and of the eight, this is it.
