    It probably wont be Gosling because I see hes starting for the Bats today.

    If its Elizardo, I hope he pitches better than he did last year when he came up.

    Nice to have him make his first start this year in the Grand Canyon (RFK Stadium). Having that big a ballpark should enable him to be alittle more agressive in the strikezone.

    It's almost impossible to get insurance on pre-existing injuries, or, at the very least, prohibitly expensive to do so.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't ballclubs insure all major contracts?

    No, you can't insure contracts over 3 years anymore, plus some players have injuries that an insurer will see as a fault... IE Milton's knee.

    Just like I can't get earthquake insurance in some areas, some players can't get insurance because of their prior problems, plus many insurers don't recoup losses until a certain percentage of games are missed.

    His degenerate knee condition is in his right knee. It looks like he'll have problems with both of them now. YAY!!!!!

    I'm also under the impression that some clubs don't think insurance is a good investment, even if it's offered. If you're a guy like Carl Pohlad, and you have a billion dollar net worth, then you can probably absorb an unfortunate injury.

    Be careful what you wish for with Elizardo. It's not like the Reds have much choice but to bring him up right now, but man he's been nothing but atrocious when he's been up.
