    I wouldn't call it guesswork. The data they use for UZR and DRS is real. The more data available however the better these stats will become.

    Williams was quoted as saying it was a moving target but did mention 3-4 weeks.

    Yup, that's why the extensions the Braves have given (young position players) makes sense and extending pitchers doesn't.

    How many people clammored for extending Beachy and/or Medlen? Both are now second TJ patients and their careers could potentially be over. I'm not saying they will be but I think the number of players who've had long productive careers after 2 TJs is pretty small.
    AJ does all the other things just as well if not better than Mac - zbhargrove

    I don't think Nolan Ryan should be a poster child for mechanics - SAV

    I think its fair to say that Medlen/Beachy will never be impactful major leaguers again. That sucks.....

    Also why Teheran's was the only extension I didn't care much for.

    Bullpen is about as much as one should hope for.

    I can see Meds maybe coming back from it since he doesnt rely on velocity, mainly location/command.

    But odds are slim he's most likely a set-up man at best the rest of his career.
