Re: Guaranteed Contracts in MLB
Boy Howdy ....How many times in the last .....five years have the reds been hurt by a player playing when he should have been on the DL?
Dunn's is probably doing this right now.
Claussen last year.
The Lizard last year.
Guardado didn't hurt the team, but he could have really screwed his arm up. Same with Merker.
Austin Kearns may well have destroyed his chance at being a superstar by coming back too soon years back.
Exactly who is it that is making up injuries and hiding on the DL? I mean, sure there are cases like Burton at the margin of the roster, but most of the times those shenanigans are from the front office, not the player.
I mean...the notion that baseball players don't play injured is pretty comical here in Southeastern Ohio.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
