Here's a little blurb from http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=k ... &type=lgns

I don't know how accurate this is... but the report makes it sound at least kinda bad.

Not only did they lose their sixth in a row Friday, a messy 9-4 setback to the New York Yankees in front of 38,636 at McAfee Coliseum, they likely have lost starting pitcher Rich Harden for an extended period of time. Harden suffered a left oblique strain in the fourth inning and was forced to leave the game. A's manager Ken Macha said Harden probably is headed for the disabled list, but the team is waiting for him to receive an MRI before making a decision.

Injuries like that generally keep a pitcher out for a month or so. Hudson had a similar injury last year, and I think he was out for a month or six weeks. It's definately bad news for his owners.

Wasn't Hudson out longer than that, or does it just seem like it because that was the final nail in my teams coffin?

Huddy missed 7 starts last year. That's about 6 weeks. But you're right, it definitely seemed longer than that.

They said that Harden's is in a different place then Hudson's, but they are still similiar. Hopefully he won't miss much time.

Harden's also 6 years younger. Maybe that will help the recovery time?

Six years younger and obviously spends ridiculous amounts of time conditioning, if you've see him in person. Plus, he didn't look happy to come out last night. I'm not even sure I expect DL time... but I'm going to be optimistic and hope 2-3 weeks if he does go DL.

Hey oc, you think this work in Harden's or Peavy's favor as far as our bet goes? I'm tending to think the latter. Had Harden not given up the amount of runs in that game prior to the injury I'd probably say the opposite, but right now Peavy can beat those two numbers if Harden were to be out for the rest of year (which obviously he isn't)
