How do you have 33 TJ's in 4 years...? That doesn't even seem possible

I pulled 2014 to 2018 so 5 years total. I googled and found a google docs spreadsheet.  Maybe it’s minor leagues too?

This sounds about right, put this on Epplers desk and tell him to start flipping shit over in the clubhouse looking for the person responsible.

So the average is 3.4 per team for the five years or less than one per year. We have defied the odds and are almost 2 per year

Wut ? You don’t actually think there’s a person making the Angels more prone to this do you ?

No but making a scene always makes people feel better.

I was at the memorial service for Dr. Frank Jobe. One of the doctors from his team said as they looked at major league rosters these days, there was something crazy like 60% of pitchers have had the surgery.

One of the Angels pitchers who had TJ suggested to me that what he did with his previous team was the cause. 

Middleton is the only one who had been only with the Angels. Everyone else came from somewhere else.

I think Fletch is referring to you dickhead dads making your 12 year olds through sliders so you can feel important if they win a trophy or something.

I remember reading just a couple years ago, we were tied for fewest TJ surgeries. Things always tend to even out.
