    Harden on the DL again.

    Per Yahoo:

    The Oakland Athletics placed right-hander Rich Harden on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, retroactive to April 3, and recalled right-hander Joey Devine from Triple-A Sacramento.

    Harden, 1-0 with an 0.82 ERA in two starts, was bumped from his scheduled start Tuesday with a strained muscle below his right shoulder blade. Oakland hoped Harden would be healthy in time to face Cleveland on Saturday, but he was still sore after throwing from flat ground before Wednesday’s game.

    That forced the Athletics to put him on the disabled list for the sixth time in the past four years.

    “He’s just not going to be ready,” manager Bob Geren said.

    Harden first felt sore while throwing a side session after Oakland returned from a season-opening series in Japan. He was able to pitch five scoreless innings against Boston on April 2, but the pain persisted. An MRI on Sunday revealed the injury.

    The 26-year-old Harden was limited to seven games for Oakland last season because of shoulder injuries.

    Geren said the Athletics will shut Harden down for an undetermined number of days before letting him try to throw again.
    His trade value has to be at an all time low. The A's now may not be able to trade him by the deadline.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I doubt the As would trade him for what they'd likely be able to get at this point. But if they'd take a couple B level prospects I'd do it.

    I blame Dusty.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Dusty had him on his Fantasy team and repeatedly used him on short rest.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...
