Forget the records moving forward. It is about winning championships!!! Put him on a pitch count and implement a strategy to keep him healthy for the long term...

It's certainly a pleasure to get to watch this guy play. He's one hell of a role model on and off the field. Enjoy it guys b/c we may not see another player like him in our life times.
