The ESPN announcers made a comment about how the brace has allowed him to throw his breaking ball inside to righties which he wasn't able to do all season.  This year Sabathia was more dominant than ever against lefties but batting practice until recently against righties.

I'm all for it, hook up the entire staff with their own.  I think the Yankee pitchers should have an exemption to use jai alai cestas to pitch.

As soon as a pitcher is signed he should be fitted for a knee brace and have TJS.

He's a warrior. Gives you everything he can everytime he takes the mound. I've never had a problem with CC other than he wasn't a very good pitcher for a long time. As a competitor and a leader of the staff he's everything you could ask for.

Question, if the knee replacement thing is accurate does that mean CC won't be able to pitch again ?? If so how does that fit his contract with us ??




Well, my guess is that he may have to retire. Recovery from replacements is remakably fast. Mines not imminent but, my Dr told me no more running after it. Its no so much because you CANT but, it will wear the joint down, make a second replacement sooner (he is too young for one, as they last about 15-20 years) Also, higher impact will loosen the joints 'glue' based on present surgery technology. Professional sports activity i would think might be too much too expect of a knee replacement Based on where the technology is today. 




My wife has had 2 knee replacements.  They like to wait unitl yiu are in your 50s at least because, as you note, they generally last 15-20 years and the original prosthesis can only be replaced once.

Why not a full-body air cast?
