Wood did have TJ surgery, but most pitcher never have arm trouble again after the surgery. Wood does have bad mechanics, but Dusty Baker abuses pitchers. When a guy is 21 years old, he shouldn't be out there throwing 200+ innings. Arm problems are going to develop. Clement had minor arm injuries and in 2003 didn't miss a start so how bad were his arm problems in SD? A sore with 200+ innings will put you on the DL. Dusty Baker lkes his starters pitching 200+ innings (4 in 2003), but they need to be properly trained and prepared, especially when they are in their first few seasons in the league
Look at other teams in the league and what they do to their young pitching. Once they hit 150 or so innings they shut them down.
I will admit Wood has sloppy mechanics, but how did he get all the way to the big leagues without that being corrected??? A pitching coach is their for that. A young pitcher isn't going to care about their mechanics if what their doing is working.
There's bigger picture behind it. What are the pitchng coaches, trainers and managers doing? They have to have some responsability.
Arm problems don't just come out of nowhere, and saying a guy has no heart because his arm hurts is ridiculous. Do you think he likes to sit on the bench and get abused by the fans and media? I pitched at the high school and collegant level, and there is a definate difference from having a sore arm from pitching and an injury.
