Re: The first 12 games of 2012 were worse...
I don't care about the record. Even losing Marshall and Ludwick isn't terrible. But, if Cueto is out 10 weeks (seems to be about standard for a Lat issue) I'm pretty concerned.
It begins to take a toll on the team. Ludwick, then Marshall and now Cueto. It's kind of like you're on the edge of a cliff. At this point they're one more serious injury away from being in pretty bad shape.
Any team that loses their ace is in trouble. Any team that loses their ace, cleanup hitter and maybe most reliable reliever. Well, good luck.
