    Heard Verducci on the radio today, he said that this could have played into it, but that Santana was always a time bomb as well because his motion was unusual, he cited Tommy Greene as having the same throwing motion and a history of issues because of it as well.

    Certainly. It does beg the question though, guys who has "unusual motions", should they be throwing 130 pitches in a game regardless of what is on the line?

    Probably not, but the game is made up of in the moment moments and that can cloud one's vision for sure. Sometimes the dragon and the knight both get slayed and the songs just celebrate the death of the dragon.

    Letting him go so hard for that no-hitter was dumb at the time and even worse now he's hurt his shoulder again. He came off a CG shutout the game before the NO-NO where he only threw 96 offical pitches in game but had to go out there 9 times to warm up making his his highest total workload in his return then following that up with 134 in another 9 innings of warming up between innings with most of the back half of the game coming under high stress.

    Its nice he got the first one in their franchise history but somethings you need to protect your fragile major investment. The Odd/Funny/Sad thing is it shouldn't have even been a No-Hitter and if the Ump got the ball he called foul right they could have pulled him in the 6th.

    Impossible to pinpoint what caused the injury however it seems to be forgotten that the Mets still could've had a no hitter if they took Johan out. For some reason this anomaly held a lot of importance in this region and I think they kept him in for that very reason.

    Sure it isn't the "same" if it is a multi pitcher no-no, but it still gets the monkey off your back.
