Steve Avery is a cautionary tale for Stephen Strasburg
LATimes - over 4 years
Avery pitched 766 1/3 innings in his first four seasons, winning 50 games, but won 46 the rest of his career as he was plagued by injuries. Agent Scott Boras has talked about Steve Avery as a cautionary tale that relates to the Washington Nationals' innings limit for Stephen Strasburg. Beginning at age 20 in 1990, Avery threw 766 1/3 innings his first four seasons, winning 50 games. He won 46 the rest of his career, plagued with injuries that began late in 1993, when he went 18-6.

Red Sox Extras: The Worst Start In 15 Years
SB Nation- Boston - over 4 years
Last year, when the Red Sox started the season 0-6, and 2-10, Sox fans were treated to statistic after statistic about how few teams recovered from such a gap to reach the playoffs, win the world series, or even achieve a winning record. It seemed like it was every writer's top priority to hammer home the hopelessness of the situation. Of course, it only makes it worse that, after seemingly overcoming every single one of those statistics and establishing themselves at the top of the AL East, the Red Sox went right ahead and blew it all in September. But that's another story altogether. This year, despite a 1-5 start, those numbers never really came up. Perhaps it's because the beat writers are all loathe to repeat themselves just one ear Or maybe it's that, unlike last year, this Red Sox team does not come with any great expectations. It would, after all, be cruel at best to have spent the last 15 years reminding Pirates fans that, based on the first couple months of the ...

    More Details Hide Details He pitched effectively but lost, 3–2, to the Toronto Blue Jays. In Game Six, he was pulled after giving up a home run to Candy Maldonado in the fourth inning.

Avery's clutch performance kept the game close enough for Francisco Cabrera to perform his heroics in the ninth inning.
    In 1992, Avery lowered his ERA to 3.20, but his record fell off to 11–11, mostly due to the Braves inability to score runs when he pitched.
