Last night when Colon threw 2 or 3 pitches to Giambi that hit 98 on the radar gun yank announcer Jim Kaat mentioned he was talking to Cooper about Colon's ability to throw in the upper 90's late in the game.
Cooper told him that Colon with many hard throwers play games when they have a big lead. They get bored and start to overthrow trying to see if they can hit a 100 on the radar gun.
Cooper felt it could cause damage to the arm and the shoulder.
