    Speculation of injury to a Cardinals pitcher.

    I figured this would be worth discussing here since they are division rivals and if these rumors are true it could have a huge effect on the 2011 season.

    From the guys at birdsonthebat.org:

    http://www.birdsonthebat.org/showthread.php?t=59292

    Strauss tweets there's rumblings of a health problem with a member of the '10 rotation and that Dr. Andrews' name is being mentioned as well. Do the math...

    Adam Wainwright did deal with some elbow pain late in the season but The Cards shrugged it off and kept running him out there to try and get the Cy Young Award. Could it be him? Carpenter is also a candidate considering his arm is usually hanging by a thread.

    That's a darn shame if it's Wainwright. I know he's the opposition and him going down would help us, but I really like the way he pitches. I'd kill to have him on The Reds staff.

    Discuss?

    Must be Carpenter, then. He looked awfullly shaky in September. Really unlike him. Lohse has always been lousy, so who could tell if he was injured?

    My guess is Carpenter then at this point.

    He'll say it was Scott Rolen's fault. :

    This could actually end up hurting The Reds if it's a guy like Kyle Lohse, and if his contract is insured.

    Lohse is locked up for 11.875M by The Cardinals for the next two years, so if he goes down for the year and they recoup any of that salary while also not being subjected to Kyle Lohse pitching, that could help them a lot.

    My thought was either Carpenter or Garcia. But Carpenter really looked shaky down the stretch.

    Can you even have TJ surgery twice?
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    Yep, Darren Dreifort did.

    I guess you can keep on having it over and over so long as you have somewhere to keep harvesting all those replacement ligaments from.

    "That Crooked Vulture" represents Reds fans very well there. Is he anyone from here?
