Tom Verducci: Bumgarner, Latos among pitchers at risk of Year After Effect

While baseball in 2010 became The Year of the Pitcher, with offensive numbers dialed back to 1992 levels, the story beneath the story is that clubs are doing a better job than ever developing young pitchers. That might not sound right in a year in which the highest profile pitcher, Stephen Strasburg, blew out his elbow and we mourned the passing of two iconic workhorses, Bob Feller and Robin Roberts, whose innings workloads remind us how much the game has changed.
