Have you ever listened to Steve Stone. I am the guy who was whispering insider information in his ear.

Trust me. I know baseball better than anyone including MLB managers. Managers will ride a pitcher through pain. If you need proof, just look back to all those 140 pitch count games Wood threw. That is what a manager will do.

I trust my eyes more than any game report. Lots of teams are about as good with injury reprots as the New England Patriots or Denver Broncos. Did you hear the latest reports from the Cubs? Prior is doing just fine and they expect him to rejoin the club any day.

If I was inside baseball I would easily put together a 100 win team every year.

Back to Sheets. I pitched. I know what pulling something in the rib cage will do. It becomes painfull to extend the arm while turning the torso. That is what Sheets looked like to my eyes. Call me wrong, but it is my eyes. And I am normally right about baseball.

I know. I was joking because the "He's fine" has been the precanned response the past 3 years. Even when the Cubs knew something was wrong it was always "He's fine".

To be fair what you are seeing could be real and it could not have anything to do with an injury. For years now they have talked about how Sheets takes an inning or two to loosen up and throw freely, its why he has more problems in the first couple innings than most and why his velocity is usually down in the first inning and goes up as the game progresses.

It is plausible that the rest of the team sees the same thing you do and its just how Sheets is early in the game, I dunno. His throwing schedule has also been very erratic because of rain outs and the weather has been crappy which could make it worse.

I don't think you are correct that they are hiding a bigger injury but what you say you saw could be real and just not mean much.

When I saw Elmer on the mound I almost crapped myself!! :~(

So I rewinded the game to see if I could see what happened. I don't have 100 mph's eye, but I couldn't see anything that looked out of the ordinary. I did, however, see Sheets as he walked off the field in the 3rd, lift up his right leg. Kinda like he was gonna stretch it out. Like I would do if I pulled something. But he wasn't limping, at least not in the 2 seconds they showed him.

Please be ok Ben!! :-o
