An injury already? Are you kidding?

In Tim Redding's haste to be...The 5th man, it seems as if the go-getter has injured his shoulder while trying to make up for lost time 'not' throwing due to healing from a previous injury (stress fracture in 2nd toe on left foot). As the vast majority here know, I'm not one to see the glass half full. But, I truly wanted to start this season off with the right attitude. The attitude of a positive person with confidence in his favorite baseball team. But whoa is me. The frost has yet to dissipate from the grass and already the injury bug has bitten. Is this a prelude of things to come?

The following quote, attributable to last season's toe injury just kills me: "I never said anything about it, because I take pride in taking the mound every fifth day." Ah! Someone would refer to him as gritty, gutsy, spirited, resolute and unyielding. C'MON man! Pitchers are as fragile as china dolls. If you're hurt, get yourself taken of and then come back. GEEBUS!
