Pitching Injuries

Earlier I was compiling a list in my head of all the guys that have been hurt in the past season, and it is simply unbelievable.  The list:

Smoltz, Glavine (Both are old, so injuries are expected)

Soriano

Gonzalez

Moylan

Huddy

Bennett

Acosta

Lerew

 

And I'm not even including Mr. Glass on the list because I don't consider him a Brave.  But good lord that's a DL all-star team (minus the last three on the list).  Why is this happening?  This doesn't happen elsewhere.  And it didn't happen during the 14-year division title streak.  And what was the constant during this streak?  Leo.  When the above mentioned guys are healthy, they still produce, so I don't want to knock McDowell too much, but I think that the pitching program these guys are on needs to be looked at.  Maybe they're throwing too much in between starts/appearances?  Not enough?  Who knows.  But I think it should at least be considered that the slew of injuries may be at least partially Roger's fault.  OR, maybe McDowell is secretly working for Dr. James Andrews, because DAMN that doc is making some bank from our pitching staff.  No, but seriously, I think the off-day routines for these guys should be looked at more carefully.
