What is so hard to grasp about that?
You're right, but I think what I and other are trying to say is that speculating that a player might get injured is a dangerous road to take.
I remember a few years ago that Gio Gonzalez was considered an injury risk and teams would be crazy to keep him around for long. 826 innings later, I wish we still had him.
