But I see other organization and players that take very extream paths to conditioning and they are holding up. So many of the youth are logging impressive numbers and the arm is holding strong. Texas is turning out power arms hand over fist and they are lead by the strongest pitcher I have had the pleasure to be around, in Nolan Ryan. Ryan was a work horse that may not have lifted weights, but he did so many things around the ranch to stay in shape, etc... Their system has an out of the box approach compared to other teams and you can see the progress with their young arms.
There is not one person to blame and it is an industry wide topic on the fence. I just think the guys could be pushed a bit harder. Sweat in the off-season to make your season a piece of cake is something a good friend told me years ago, and should hold more weight today than it did 20 years ago.
