Prior has a score achilles, better not draft him. Even worse, Jim Thome, who as actually sustained an injury, instead of an ache, and a one time ache in Santana's case, with that broken finger is probably done for his career.
When it comes to a pitchers arm, a twinge can be a big deal because it can lead to other things. Also, a twinge can mean other things. Sometimes it starts with a twinge, and ends up somewhere else. Prior's sore achilles is nothing compared to this because its his leg. We all know that pitchers make their money with their arm. Its ludicrious to say that we shouldnt be worried. A twinge can mean that he strained a tendon or a ligament or many other things, wake up man.
