FWIW, when I started playing guitar, it used to tear up my fingers so I'd put rubbing alcohol on them, which would dry them out and toughen them up, particularly while playing, and it seemed to work pretty well.

I do have Harden and Beckett this year, I wonder if I ought to drop them a line?

Maybe Beckett and Harden could learn from Moises Alou and Posada that urinating on your hands is a great way to toughen them up: ... uby/040511

Just picture one of them on the bench between innings, with their hand in a big bucket of urine, like some wacked out "Madge the Palmolive lady" commercial.

"Urine: Toughens hands while you wait between innings."

I need help.

Beckett will be a top 10 starter this year. Harden will need a few seasons to get up there.
