Maybe it is just the media markets, or the reporters themselves. I don't get how everyone thinks Duncan is brilliant, but Carpenter, Westbrook and Jamie Garcia have all had Tommy John operations. Now Wainright looks to have one and Kyle Lohse had an operation for a compressed nerve (all of these within the last few years) all on Duncan's watch. If all this happened with Larry, do we really think he would not be chased by roving mobs with pitchforks? Just asking.
