I would have guessed he was chopping wood or doing some sort of home repair. Hard to fault the guy for an injury that occurred during a workout.
Is it Doomsday already?
We forgot this part of the article:
"He will wear a splint for three weeks, and the Reds think the injury will heal by the time pitchers and catchers report Feb. 16."
Not to be cruel to David Weathers, and I hope he's okay, but this really doesn't matter in the grand scope of this team.
This is kinda like Arby's running out of parsley.
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
Hope he's ok.
Blame Vander Wal!
As a cost cutting measure, team doctors set the injury using one of these:Originally Posted by Unassisted

Frankly, I think that the Reds wasted their 2003 first-round pick.

Coaches always tell young players, "Catch the baseball with two hands."
Don't tell that to Cincinnati Reds relief pitcher David Weathers.
Weathers suffered a torn extensor tendon in his right index finger Tuesday while playing catch. The finger is expected to be in a splint for three weeks.
Weathers told General Manager Dan O'Brien he injured the finger working out at his home in Loretto, Tenn. When he tried to catch a throw with two hands, the ball struck the tip of his right index finger. He told O'Brien he was not feeling pain, but to heal properly the finger requires a splint.
The Reds saves leader last season is not expected to miss the start of spring training in mid-February, but he won't be playing catch for a while — and when he does he might want to try catching the ball with one hand.
My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!
