I don’t know what caused the back spasms (that leap?) but the hammy was a legit injury, he stretched it way too much.bummer for the guy.....should be ROY. Now will not. Hope he's not gonna be hurt all the time.
wouldn't doubt if that leap caused it......the guy plays with reckless abandon all the time.....and I agree it might take someone to advise him he's only valuable when he's actually on the field and if he continues to put his body in danger in order to make spectacular plays in the field or on the bases he will likely miss significant time due to needless injury. Now if it's in the playoffs or world series,,,,have at it....but a regular season game no. It's analagous to a running athletic QB who has to figure out how to avoid taking too many hits.I don’t know what caused the back spasms (that leap?) but the hammy was a legit injury, he stretched it way too much.
Perhaps the acrobatics he attempts causes him to get injured? If that’s the case someone needs to advise him to tone it down a little.
And salt in the wound: He has 1999 career hits. This may be it for him so he may never get 2000.
Didn’t he get the neck injury while pitching? Good move to put him out there.
Lol! I didn’t mean it that way! It was sarcasm but I guess it doesn’t translate very well via the written word.LOL cold blooded.
You could be on to something. "Back spasms" shouldn't be a season ending injury.I am not liking that they used the term "stress reaction" for his back. Things like 'strain', 'spasm', etc would be typically used for muscle injury. "Stress" is used for bone injury in general and gotta be concerned he might have suffered some sort of stress fractue of a vertebra. Jeebus. This guy might be in the 'injury prone' category. He needs to dial back the high risk dives, slides, stretches and reaches and leaps, at least during the regular season and particular in series that are not so important....and especially if we already are either way ahead or way behind. Go ahead and have at it in the playoffs or series.....but otherwise play smart. If he's on the bench half the time he isn't gonna do a hell ofa lot of good and his career could end up being stunted.
They need to hire a big name and show they are serious, that they'll spend whatever to win. But that ain't happening and never has with the Pads. Supposedly this is a new ownership with a whole different philosophy and committment. Right now it isn't paying off....and it's questionable how committed they are given the manager. We'll see after this offseason. I'm not holding my breath.Other than Pat Murphy, who was interim manager after they fired Black, the Padres usually stick with their manager for a good amount of time. I pretty much feel like we’re going to see Green one more year, but he will officially be on the hot seat.
I dunno. Hiring big name expensive managers goes against what is working now for other teams. Like it out not, money goes into analytics now, not into a manager. We fans always want big names because that's who we know. We don't know some up and coming manager in the minors or some bench coach on another team.They need to hire a big name and show they are serious, that they'll spend whatever to win.
