Re: Reds sign Mark Prior
You have to go with best current practice, which changes as we learn more. And we're always learning more, whether you're talking about baseball or knee surgery.
I very much like the job Dusty is doing with the Reds and am hesitant to go after him for things that have happened in the past, but yes, his handling of Prior is likely part of the reason for his injuries. Upper management also deserves some of the blame. We know more now, and I don't see this repeating, at least partially because of what happened to Prior.
