It's been a frustrating couple years of bad luck for Sheeter. A finger sprain like this could happen to anyone, regardless of injury history. It's the kind of thing that has the same odds of happening to a horse like Clemens as it would to a guy like Harden. As a Brewers fan, I'm just glad that it's A) nothing serious and B) unrelated to the one true injury he has suffered (back/shoulder). I almost wonder if they're just being conservative (and maybe post-season conscious) since they know they have a more-than-adequete fill in with Gallardo to give Sheets some time off.
hopefully, but the reports of a similar "pop" to zumaya's have me a little less optimistic
The MRI turned up negative. If it were the same something would have shown up I guess. That's what has everyone relatively optimisitc. On the plus side, we finally get to see Manny Parra. It wasn't too long ago that he was our #1 pitching prospect and injuries set him back significantly. Well, he's 24 now and has come all the way back to dominate AA and AAA (including a AAA perfect game). Left handed starters that throw as hard as he does are few and far between. I think he'll be taking Gallardo's long relief slot for now, but I can't wait to get a look at him.
I'm equally excited about Parra, he's about a bold a silver lining as possible for Sheets owners, even if just for a chance to see him up a little while...I wasn't aware of that about Sheets either, that's great news...I thought the additional tests tomorrow were supposed to determine whether it'd be a long-term injury or not...that the MRI would have revealed a Zumaya-esque injury is very comforting
