    Dan Langfield injury update....

    .....still a ways to go.


    Rehabilitation has involved a lot of stretching and a buildup of distance throwing from 45 feet to, he hoped, 90 feet by the end of last week.“I’ve got a little ways to go. I’m not rushing anything. I want to avoid any surgery at all. ... Running and rehab. That’s about as fun as it gets.”Langfield has been back throwing for about a month and he’s hoping to be back in action within a month-and-a-half, but, he confessed, “there is no official timetable. We’ll let it run its course.”

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Thanks TD, was just wondering about this. His numbers were extremely impressive last year (and we've had very good luck lately taking college pitchers in the third round).

    That really sucks. He was awesome last year after getting drafted (he was the Ben Lively of 2012). Oh well, plenty of pitchers have come back from injuries early in their career.

    Anymore, I'd almost rather it be a elbow as opposed to a shoulder

    No question, especially if it's Tommy John. Some guys come back stronger from Tommy John. No one comes back stronger from shoulder surgery.

    How did it go?
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    I'm back in San Diego now, so I have no idea how it went. I was hoping someone visiting Goodyear would follow up. A nice thing this year is that the minor league players have their names on their uniforms. Makes watching the drills much more fun.
