    Shelby Miller may have a shoulder issue

    Via Joe Strauss on Twitter
    Shelby Miller shut down w/shoulder "tightness." Return unknown. what was once 8 for 5 spots now 6 for 5.
    As much as I hate the Cardinals, it is a terrible for such a promising young pitcher to get hurt.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    How is he going to explain this to ...

    Ah, nevermind. Get well soon, kid. I don't want any excuses when the Reds win their third NL Central title in the last four years!

    "Shut down" might be a stretch at this juncture. Time will tell.

    Gosh you are nice.

    This sort of thing gets a fist pump from me.

    I know, awful. But true.

    I pretty much agree. I would expect the same by other teams' fans. And it doesn't bother me. As long a given event takes place "between the foul lines" that helps the Reds, I'm happy.

    I couldn't watch the Super Bowl. I hate both those teams because of my love of the Bengals.

    The happy competitor stopped in little league for me lol....

    This is blown out of proportion. The link listed above yields the following quote:
    "We're going to give him a day to kind of grab some time in the training room and work on it. He's just going to get another day of rest. We're not too concerned."
    Matheny said there are no plans to further examine Miller's shoulder.

    I can't remember hearing about a pitcher experiencing shoulder stiffness that didn't lead to bad news eventually. If I remember correctly, this is exactly how Masset's and Madson's injuries started. Also how Cueto and Bailey's injuries in 2011 spring training started too.

    didn't Chapman have shouldered issues that he bounced back form mid season last year?

    It was termed shoulder fatigue, I believe, not stiffness. Basically, the claim was that he had a tired arm.

    Regardless of the downplaying by Matheny, a pitcher with shoulder tightness is cause for immediate concern.

    I still like the idea of winning "fair and square",not at the expense of rooting for someone's hurt.

    Too many devil's advocates and grey areas anymore.I think we're losing the ability to see right or wrong.

    I can only speak for myself but I don't root for anyone to get hurt. No one has come out and said that yet I might add.

    But once it occurs I am glad that the Reds chances just improved. I certainly don't say, "shucks I wanted to beat the Cardinals at full strength". Some do feel that way and that's fine by me...and I won't preach to them how they should feel.

    The one thing that somewhat is a brain teaser are circumstances like the following...

    When the Cards (or any opponent) signs a "run down" vet on the cheap, with that cheap price being due to the players injury risk...what are we supposed to do, wish them for great health so the Cards make out like bandits? Berkman and Beltran are examples of this.

    I also like it when opponents make bad player decisions, prospects are revealed as pyrite, and a bad hop goes against them. I'm a bad, bad man.

    Injuries happen. I can feel bad for Miller the person and sick glee about how this leaves the Cardinals rotation.

    Seams easy enough to rationalize to me.
