From Marc Lancasters blog...


In other news, the team extended the contracts of its entire medical staff -- head trainer Mark Mann, assistant trainer Steve Baumann, strength and conditioning coordinator Matt Krause, physical therapist John Walker and medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek.

Not major but to me dissapointing. There were far too many injuries that went undetected last year. Far too many guys trying to "play through the pain" and not enough medical staff figuring out something was wrong. Doc Ks medical updates are next to useless.

Like I said, a very small part of the overall picture but one I would have liked to have seen change.

That's really sorry.
The inability to diagnose problems or fix down return dates has been a serious issue for 5-6 years. I'm shocked this didn't change.

When the inevitable leg injury occurs, Griffey likes it wrapped a certain way.

My understanding was that Dr. K's contract was actually day to day, with a possible extension sometime later in the week, perhaps early next week. However, there is still some tightness.
