Livan's gone mad!

Postby fiz » Thu Jul 21, 2005 12:20 am

8-o 8-o 8-o

The Washington Nationals' All-Star pitcher wouldn't say exactly what was bothering him or fully explain why he suddenly announced after Wednesday night's 3-2 loss to the Rockies that he's contemplating having right knee surgery that could end his season.

"I'm not happy for three years. After the season, I'm going to tell you" why, said Hernandez, 12-4 with a 3.44 ERA and the unquestioned staff ace.

"It's 99.9 percent I'm not going to pitch no more" this season, he said. "I'm done, I think, so let's see what happens. ... I'll go to sleep and I'm going to make a decision tonight."

His right knee has been a nagging problem all year, and it was drained May 16. But Hernandez said it's not bothering him enough to affect his pitching -- nor was he told to have the knee worked on.

"It's not the doctors. It's me. I'm the doctor. I don't need it, but I'm going to" have an operation, he said.

Pressed to explain why, Hernandez said: "I'm tired of something. ... I'll tell you when the season's over. I'm mad."

Told of Hernandez's comments, Nationals manager Frank Robinson said he didn't want to say much without hearing directly from his pitcher.

"I have no idea who he's mad at," Robinson said.

Wow, this is really strange. I have heard a few thoughts on this, that it may have something to do with Frank Robinson, or maybe to do with Will Cordero being sent down to the minors, or that he is upset that he keeps playing hurt when Nick Johnson keeps sitting out. They all seem like lame excuses to me, but it is all I have heard. Sounds to me like he was just blowing off some steam, hopefully more will be known tomorrow.

Yeah, NJ must be the type of guy that would really irritate a guy that plays through problems like Livan...

...NJ has a hang nail and he sits out 2 months.

My team is officially done. My pitching was the only thing holding me together.
