Last night in the Tigers - Twins game, hard throwing Joel Zumaya gunned one of his 100 mph heaters towards home plate. Catcher Gerald Laird said he heard a loud 'POP'. It looks like Zumaya could be done for the season. It's sad to see a guy have to be helped off the field in so much pain.
Leyland had a thought provoking comment after the game. "There was no indication that anything was wrong (with Zumaya) before tonight," Leyland said. "I don't know that anything was wrong. But I've always said with any pitcher, you are one pitch away from throwing their last pitch."
I hope Strasburg is the next Roger Clemens. With pitchers, there are no guarantees.
