Rich Harden=Josh Beckett???

"Apr 5 Athletics pitcher Rich Harden, who was supposed to start Wednesday night, won't start until Sunday against the Devil Rays, according to the Contra Costa Times. He continues being bothered by a blister on his middle finger.
Views: The Athletics are playing it smart with Harden. They want to make sure the blister doesn't rip, which would cost him even more time. Harden will take the mound Sunday against a much more beatable Devil Rays team, and we expect him to be on his game."


Uh oh...

I don't even want to hear it.
I bobbled all off-season about whether to keep Harden or Beckett. Projection-wise, I found them to be virtually the same, so I kept Harden, if only because of Beckett's blister history.
Then this happens.
Nonetheless, this is nothing serious. The problem with Beckett was that the blisters recurred. The next time Harden develops a blister, then you can get worried.

On the other hand, Al Leiter went through the blister thing and is working with Beckett this year on his so hopefully his problem has gone away~

I don't want to hear it either. As a beckett owner last year and a harden owner this year, I will be ready to go on a rampage if harden pulls a beckett on me.

Im suprised people had the two with such similar projections. I have Beckett ahead by quite a bit.

Blisters aren't a chronic thing for Harden. Stop trippin'

He's not Josh Beckett by any means. This is just one blister.....

btw, I have blisters all the time, and they don't bother me at all.....

I get them when I pitch, and it is absolute hell. I can see exactly why these guys can't throw when they have blisters.
