This is also why it is foolish to guarantee any cash to any pitcher for more than 2-3 years at a time beyond their 20s, at which point they are both declining and still a massive injury risk.

    Smart GMs obviously know this, but the pressure to win now while they have a job outweighs the consequences 5+ years from now when they could very well be out of a job anyways.
    Obviously team payroll plays a large part in that as well. If you're the Yanks or BoSox or Dodgers and you believe that money will probably get you an ace for 3 years, you don't mind ****ting away the money in years 4 and 5. You can afford it.

    There is a 5 year window after TJ surgery where a pitcher is generally a much better health risk.

    Didn't he also get hurt in the Phillies NLCS in '93?
