    Even Bob Gibson?

    I remember all the talk about Williamson's violent throwing motion guaranteeing injuries down the road.

    I also remember a lot of talk about how the easy, natural throwing motions of Rich Harden and Mark Prior would allow them to pitch forever.

    I remember hearing about Mark Prior's 'perfect' mechanics, but after his injury, the 'experts' changed what they considered to be perfect mechanics.

    He lives in Cleves,Ohio. Just up the street from where I live. I met his daughter at a pancake breakfast. I have not met him yet. Hoping to have the chance soon.

    IMO, it's extremely foolish for a baseball fan to think any pitcher -- regardless of how good their mechanics are -- is somehow safe from arm injuries. Even with "good mechanics" the human arm is not meant to do what pitchers do over and over again. It's hard on the arm even when your mechanics are "sound."

    But if you have bad mechanics, it heightens your risk for arm injuries even more.

    I believe this story is more than a year old. Something must have transpired since then.
