ESPN1050 just reported that Nady is likely headed for Tommy John Surgery and is likely done for the season. That is bad news for the Yankees and good news for my fantasy team (I have Matsui and Damon, less bodies to platoon). After Michael Kay announced the news he said that he's suprised that it happened given how "Nady takes care of his arm." He went on to say that Nady throws every ball as hard as he can so that "No throw sneaks up on him." Umm, isn't there a point in warming up? Loosening up the arm so that it is physical ready to throw hard. Doesn't picking up the ball and immediately throwing it as hard as you can seem like a dumb thing? I'm no physical therapist, my girlfriend is, but I can't imagine throwing every ball as "hard as you can" is a good thing.
