Default Injuries around baseball

Thought maybe a catch-all thread would be better than a bunch of individual ones.

Bumgarner was hit on the pitching hand by a line drive yesterday and fractured a knuckle. He might be out until midseason now. Massive blow to the Giants rotation.

How long has the Giants training staff been employed? Are they getting complacent? Maybe they should bring in outside voices to see if this kind of injury could be avoided.

But though FRATER laughed openly, he wept secretly; and really he neither laughed nor wept. Nor did he mean what he said.

LOL as you well know Frater this was a completely random injury. How often do pitchers have hands broken because of a line drive? If you want to take the time to look it up I'm sure the number is quite small. And his injury last year was because of his own recklessness.

The Giants have won three World Series in the past 10 years or so, the Sox haven't done **** and have seen their guys go down above the league average in numbers and numbers of games missed according to the Sox 2018 media guide.

Big difference but feel free to keep laughing.

You said it yourself. This was a completely random injury. So was Burgerís Achilles rupture, Robertís thumb, and Abreuís hamstring.

And you know what? Pitchers suffer injuries to their elbows and shoulders quite often because pitching is a biologically/physiologically unnatural repetitive motion. The difference now compared to 40 years ago is that pitchers are more likely to have surgery to correct problems, and those pitchers are more likely to come back and pitch effectively after having had surgery.

Iím not against the Sox hiring a consultant or even hiring additional training staff, but a recent regression to the mean of injuries/games lost is not sufficient evidence for me to accuse and convict Herm Schneider and his staff of complacency.

Fair enough I accept your premise and we'll have to agree to disagree then.

On a side note I'm familiar with the term Frater from my fraternity days. It's something not often found. Were you in a frat?

Ha!

No, Iíve never been a member of a fraternity.

ďFrater PerduraboĒ is a pseudonym that Aleister Crowley used. One of his poems, ďOnion Peelings,Ē is my signature.

I think I saw Chris Sale get hit in the buttocks by a line drive today.

Impossible - Chris Sale does not possess a "buttocks."
