Yin and Yang of Injuries

Yin and Yang of Injuries

In my day job, if I were to get hit by a truck while scootering to the office, the other person on my team would likely get my "Lead" role by default. Good for him. Bad for me. I've been wearing more safety gear lately just in case no matter how hot it is. In baseball, injuries both break and make careers in an odd yin and yang sort of way. No one wants to cheer an injury with the knowledge ... Continue Reading

Injury bug

Well, poop - I guess I at least caught Ryan Zimmerman's last game before he went on the 15 day disabled list. Saturday night, Zimmerman re-injured an abdominal strain sliding into 2nd base that first bothered him during spring training. Huge bummer! Things seem a bit touch-and-go with new first baseman, Adam LaRoche as well, initially bothered by a slight tear in his throwing shoulder and now a "slightly" strained groin suffered yesterday, which made for an interesting defensive alignment ...

Strasburg Going For Tommy John – Bumpy 24 Hours

Posted on August 27, 2010 at 5:40 pm

I'm going to preface this post and mention that my post about Dibble's comments came from a passion for this team and a protection instinct over its players because... well just because. I felt he was prematurely wrong with his 'be tough' statements, and I don't have any desire to hate on anyone. No matter how much he tries to backpedal and change the original context - which is apparently still the fault of the internet. But he's not the ... Continue Reading

Whoosh! That's the remaining air rushing out of the Nats season after their shiny new toy that filled seats both at home and on the road went on the 15-day disabled list for the 2nd time in a month. Let's face it - Strasburg is a mere mortal, not a superhero bestowed unnatural powers by the hopes and dreams of fans following this team. Indications on the field last night against the Cubs made it appear the team took the ... Continue Reading

MissChatter: On The DL

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 11:31 am

Over at CSN, I have to write a minimum of 500 words, which sends me into a panic since some of the funny bits would be hard to expand to 500 words. I've wanted to get on the awesome video of Kasten pie-ing Mike Rizzo in the face and donning the Silver Elvis wig, but what more needs to be said than the video? There's a new catcher (my specialty!) in town with Wil Nieves on leave after the birth ... Continue Reading
