    In any event I don't recall seeing so many of this specific injury in other seasons.

    Also, another one of those home runs/not home run things happened. A case of overrunning the leading baserunner. Would have thought that one in a season would be enough to remind players not to do that.

    I'd look for patterns in teams and/or players but it could just be conditioning, too.

    We had a bad year with injuries one year in college and it was due to a bad trainer and conditioning coach. It got WAAAY better the next year when both were gone!

    But He is always hanging out at the Children's hospital. Sadly Covid has hurt that a bigt. but pre covid he would go there 6 or 7 days a month and spend just hours hanging with the kids. And he never let the local media come with him. He wants it to be about him and the kids. I remember a local Channel 9 reporter ambushed him there one day after Votto told him not to and he had that guy lightweight banned. Had the other players and even the manager not answer his questions or do an interview with him and it pretty much ruined him here.

    I just love the guy and in Cincy he is loved I think more then bench. He is my second favorite player on the Reds and 3rd all time favorite baseball player

    I'm so hoping my Phillies can end their 10 year drought.

    Ah, better then. Good. Albert Pujols over at the Dodgers is the sort of player every team needs. At least two of the younger Dodgers use his bat in hopes that some of his mojo rubs off on them, I suppose. Seems to have worked.

    I was screaming bloody murder at Nola who sucked yet again. But, the Phils staged an amazing comeback to score the win. And with the Braves having lost in Arizona, Philly is now two games behind Atlanta for first place in NL East. However, with the Cardinals erasing a 5-1 deficit against Milwaukee to notch their 12th straight win, it's starting to look like the only way for the Phils to make the playoffs is to win their division as they're four games back for the second wild card.

    My personal feeling is that it's pandemic related in that the players probably didn't have the access to personal coaches like so many use. The steroid thing would make sense if it was just one or two teams and one or two players. But this is MLB wide, with no apparent pattern I can see. I suppose we'll see more next season, if those injury lists seem like this one, or are more normal.

    Basically, Captain America is pissed at a lot of Major Leaguers for skipping leg day...

    My Phillies came from behind to beat Pittsburgh 8-6 last night while Atlanta lost a (kinda sorta) twin bill in San Diego last night. As a result, the Phightins are only a game behind the Braves for first place in NL East. With the second NL wild card seemingly out of reach after St. Louis swept the Cubs for their FOURTEENTH straight win, the Phils will have to keep their own little roll going and capture the division to make the playoffs.

    Scoreboard watching is absolutely hellish: After my Phillies blanked Pittsburgh 3-0 yesterday afternoon, I watched Braves-Padres on FOX that night, knowing that an Atlanta loss would pull Philly half a game away from first in NL Least. Things looked great early after a Manny Machado grad slam in the fifth put the Fathers up 7-3 and had me feeling plenty good. Unfortunately, the Braves came right back in the sixth to tie the score, leaving me perturbed. Then the Pads took an 8-7 in the bottom of the same inning and I was upbeat again. Sadly, it all went to hell after Atlanta tied the game in the ninth, then won in the tenth 10-8. Dammit! So, going into Sunday afternoon's home finale, my squad is still trailing the Braves. URGH! Thanks for nothing, San Diego!
