[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Pineda having labral surgery : TWM admit you're wrong like a man! Oh I didn't realize you watch every NYY game, that puts you at a level of knowledge few reach. You should write a book. Do you watch more Yankee games than Cashman? Thanks for the laugh. http://www.nj.com/yankees/index.ssf/2009/04/cashman_on_wang_when_somebody.html
NEW YORK -- Throughout his struggles, Chien-Ming Wang has maintained that he's perfectly healthy. Yankees manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman have done the same. But Cashman admits that Wang has exhibited the red flags that come with injury. "As of right now, we have no reason to believe he's not healthy," Cashman said. "But I've been down that road too before. So, we're looking at everything else right now but health. But at the same his velocity is down, and his command is off, and those are two indicators also sometimes. So, we'll keep looking at it." Said Cashman: "When somebody struggles to this degree, you always wonder about health."

You would be best to sticking with what you know like the Red Sox.
You are being obstinate.
Any teenage Yankee fan knows the problems that destroyed Wang's career with the Yankees and it was the loss of his sinker.
The articles you provide also talk about his loss of control but you chose to make an issue out of velocity.
He changed his arm angle to improve his sinker that is how he injured his shoulder.
You seem to put so much stock into the web here from Wikipedia:
On April 3, 2009, Wang became the first Yankees' starting and the first game winning pitcher of the new Yankee Stadium in the stadium opener exhibition game against Chicago Cubs. After the Cleveland Indians beat the Yankees 22–4 on April 18, manager Joe Girardi said, "We have some time. We have a day off, I think Thursday, and we're going to have to decide what's best for Chien-Ming Wang and the team." Through April 18, Wang was 0–3 with a 34.50 ERA.
There was speculation that the right foot injury Wang sustained during the 2008 season caused him to compensate with the rest of his pitching motion, leading to his 2009 struggles. MLB Tonight discussed the differences between Wang's mechanics in early 2008 (before he was injured) and his mechanics during the Cleveland game on April 18. On April 22, General Manager Brian Cashman, at a Q&A at Southern Connecticut State University, confirmed Wang's release point was 5 inches higher than the same time the previous season.
