DateQuestionAnswer
2010-09-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)As much as it pains me to say this, Nick Johnson's career is pretty much effectively over now, right?
(jeffk from NYC)
No. If Chad Fox can keep showing up in camp, Johnson has years left.

Lightning round. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-02-19 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love your UTK reports, indeed all your coverage, often the only reliable stuff because local reporters are generally hopeless on injuries. My question: Is there any such thing as a Second TJ? Many young pitchers (especially, I guess, if they spent college at Rice!) seem to have TJ automatically after signing their MLB deal. Does this mean they have a half-life, like a radioactive isotope? Or is there a limit to how far they can go, like a triple bypass is only supposed to be good for ten years? Are there any statistics collected on this? Thanks.
(BeplerP from New York, NY)
There have been second and even third TJs. (Scott Williamson and Chad Fox are two triples that come to mind.) There's a five year "honeymoon" period where very few TJers have another elbow problem, but there is an increased incidence in shoulder injuries. If the mechanics are bad and not fixed, by fixing the previous weak link in the kinetic chain, something else is now going to be the weak link. (Will Carroll)
