Bonderman has the elbow issue becuasae of his filthy stuff. He throws a nasty curve that is terror on the elbow. I guess we will have to play the season before I claim the pennant for the tigs.
The situation with bonderman reminds me of what happened to Fransisco Liriano in Minnesota. He had a wicked slider and was the favorite to win AL Rookie of the Year but the ace's rookie year was cut short cuz he screwed up his elbow and had to have Tommy John's surgery.
