First pitch in tonight's game is about an hour away and I'll be watching intently. I hit Pedro pretty hard in my Flushing University column this week, which was not easy to do. I hope that the Pedro supporters out there are correct and that I got this one wrong. Rotator cuff injuries are just so difficult to overcome - can anyone think of a player who made a full recovery from the surgery? Joe Saunders has progressed nicely this season, but his K rates are atrocious. Rick Reuschel was effective in his late 30s, but I'm struggling to remember any other pitcher who ever made a full recovery from this type of injury.
That said, I feel like my columns have been very negative the past few weeks and it's too easy to get into that habit as a writer. I'll try to switch it up next week.
