    Is pretty simple, imo. They built up arm strength and stamina by Pitching. Lots of Pitching. 8 innings- 9 innings. No 5 inning limits.

    I’d be curious to know if it’s true but the Cards seem to consistently be among the worst teams at handling the kind of injuries that guys like Reyes and now, Flaherty, have gone through. Whatever will take the longest and bring the least success is the route I expect they’ll take.

    They are already dropping like flies.

    Mo had better have JA Happ and Wade LeBlanc on speed dial, assuming they are now healthy.

    Not being able to communicate with the team?

    1) These guys have the money to have access to top notch medical personnel & facilities all day long.

    2) As far as communication? Heck, there are several ways to indirectly communicate with people even if we buy into that there was no talking going on between any player and any organization person – which I don’t. No one was monitoring cell phone records like this was a murder investigation.

    Worst case throw a hint out on a social media platform….not ideal but gets the job done.

    Totally agree. It’s about who is ultimately responsible for a player’s health. It’s not the owners or their organization. They are just there to help.

    ZTR and Mud, couldn’t agree more. It would be like any employer trying to dictate when one of us common folks go in for our annual physical. Didn’t one group use “my body my choice” at one point then flip it to “your body my choice” pretty recently? That’s not political, just a point that everyone controls their own body, shoulder, knee, ankle, arm, etc.

    They will be using Reyes’ arm as a textbook case for medical school students for years to come. But that didn’t stop Schlidt from using him at a critical juncture of our last season. Gee, I wonder why he got fired, lol?

    I actually thought Reyes was going to end up getting a handful of starts and really pitch well this year.

    As the 4th or 5th guy the pressure wouldn’t be there like it was as a closer and he would be able to throw more controlled at 94-95 than he did at 97-98 and hopefully keep the walks down.

    This sucks.

    Sad to think of all the potential in that arm that looks like it will never be realized. Man, Reyes’ inability to stay healthy hurts. It seems like all the Cards’ big prospects have turned out that way lately.

    Huge talent. Hopefully some day he gets healthy. Time moves swiftly.

    I hope he can get these injuries figured out and get healthy. Such a huge talent that’s probably going to be wasted. Crazy thing is he’s going to be 28 in August and the Cardinals can control him for just 1 more year after this year. With our luck recently, he will get healthy at the end of 2023 and leave as a free agent.

    Flaherty with a bum shoulder is headed down the same path. Hoping for a miraculous healing is not a good player development strategy.

    I think it’s fair to question the Cardinals medical staff. Doesn’t it seem like we lose more time to injury than most, just about every year?

    I think the best conditioning strategy, might just be virtually no strategy. Whatever the Cards are doing, it’s simply not working. Maybe it’s best to go old school here and let the players run, stretch and lift free weights. No fancy smancy workout machines coupled with restricted diets. And then let them play and let them pitch, minus these strict pitch counts that transform these guys into babies. I’m not advocating pitching these guys’ arms off, but let’s toughen these players up some, shall we?

    If you look at the all-time Innings Pitched list you have to go all the way to 115 before you find a Current Player. Greinke has thrown 3,148 Innings. Not all on that list were superstars. I always think back to a rotator cuff surgery. To rehab it you work it. Send the Pitchers to the Steve Carlton bucket of rice school.

    Not picking on you personally, stlcard25, as in my experience, most every team’s fans get frustrated about injuries.

    The reality is that the Cards were in the middle of the injury pack last season, whether quantity of games lost or quality of players. I don’t subscribe to this site, but they have history info and different slices of the data.

    I am keeping an eye on McGreevy in particular as an example of a pitcher who was bubble wrapped his whole first year.
