Under The Knife: Fixer-Uppers

17

Will Carroll

Juggling assets, plugging holes, repairing the damage, and fretting over the returns.

Daisuke Matsuzaka (20 DXL)
Sox fans should understand this one, because it's what one (geeky) source called a "Galactica injury," a reference to the show's line of "This has happened before and this will happen again." Matsuzaka heads to the DL with what is officially a strained pitching shoulder, and what one source called a "very, very, very minor strain," that amounts to little more than fatigue. This DL trip is virtually identical to the time that he took off last season to focus on strengthening his shoulder, and he came back from that without any problem. The read here is that the early start for Matsuzaka has him fatigued, putting his arm at risk. By shutting him down and working on his shoulder, the team thinks he'll return quickly. I believe that he'll miss somewhere just over the minimum, maybe three starts, and he'll come back as the brilliant but frustrating pitcher we're accustomed to seeing.

Under The Knife: Takeaways

Will Carroll

Taking a look at the latest slate of injured athletes to conjure up a set of Medhead Rules.

Many of today's injuries made me think of the "rules" that come up. If I ever put together a list of these "Medhead Rules," it would probably be a lot longer than I'd expect. There are a lot of injuries to cover, reminding me that the first rule might just be "Taking a day off only means more work next time."

Every Given Sunday: Big Apple Scramble

0

John Perrotto

The Mets wrestle with their options down the stretch, the Astros don't stop believing, and news from around the majors.

For those who do not believe that things can change in a hurry in baseball, we present the New York Mets. The Mets were in a full-fledged panic at the beginning of the week when they dropped an ugly 7-5 decision to the Pirates at Shea Stadium. The Mets had led 5-1 after six innings, and then watched their bullpen (sans injured closer Billy Wagner) give up three runs in the seventh inning and three more in the ninth. A day later, interim manager Jerry Manuel said he would seriously consider resorting to drastic measures by moving one of his starting pitchers (left-hander Oliver Perez or right-handers John Maine and Mike Pelfrey) to the pen to serve as the interim closer, and subsequently as the primary set-up man once Wagner returned. "It's a pennant race, and you do everything you can to stay in a pennant race," Manuel said.
