FanGraphs Audio: Dave Cameron on the New Bullpen

Episode 710
Dave Cameron is the managing editor of FanGraphs. On this edition of the program, he examines the possible value (both for team and player) of converting starting prospects like Edwin Diaz to relief; discusses the Royals’ attempts to hedge against the loss of half-a-dozen players to free agency; and speculates wildly on the number of talented younger players who’ve left the game due to fear of pitcher velocity.

If I remember correctly, sports like weightlifting and powerlifting have the lowest incidents of injury. I don’t know if that was compared to sports like golf though. Still, when you are strong, you are much less likely to get injured.
