If Sale can rebound, the Braves have themselves a bargain. He has an injury history, to be sure, but some of those could be attributed to bad luck and not a larger medical trend.

Maybe it's bad luck, you never know, but when you've thrown 150 innings in 4 seasons and are turning 35 that doesn't give much reason for optimism.

Strider...ugh, that's horrible.

All pitchers are ticking timebombs. I think they always have been. Its stress on the ligiments now just as it was 100 years ago. That said the rise in breaking ball useage and the obsession with maxing velo is putting todays guys at greater risk


Also why I could never extend a young pitcher that is cost controlled for 4 or 5 years. Sure, there is some number that would work for me but it wouldnt work for the pitcher. Once you are talking about FA years if you want to bite the bullet on some massive 5 or 6 year deal then more power to you. Something I think PA had right for the most part when he would never give a guy more than 3 years for the longest time. Ill happily give a FA P much more AAV on a short deal. Will be imteresting to see how many years Burnes gets in FA assuming he has another quality year. Is he going to get 5+ years or is a team gonna give him a boatload more AAV for 3
