    Homer to DL

    Was just listening to the game on the radio and apparently Homer is going to the DL. Lecure will be taking his spot in the rotation.

    Good grief.

    Wondering now if Jockety might be talking with the Cubs as Carlos Silva might be starting in the pen but had a good start his last outing.

    Things seem to be piling up testing our "depth" at pitching. Hopefully whatever is wrong with Bailey isn't serious or Cueto. That and Arroyo possibly having a respiratory infection. Going to be interesting to see how things turn out.

    Not a chance. The Cubs fancy themselves as contendors, and no way they are trading a starting pitcher to the defending division champ.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    This is why I've always maintained that you need 7 or 8 legitimate Starting Pitchers going into the season.

    We've got two down (Cueto and Bailey), one a little down (Arroyo), and all the rest have been ineffective so far.

    In the long run, our depth will be our strength.

    Just think how bad it would be if we had only had 2 or 3 legitimate starters instead of 6 or 7?

    I should have mentioned this initially. It's an impingement of the shoulder. Walt says he should only miss 2 starts, for what that's worth.

    Rumor has it Sam LeCure will take his spot for a couple starts. Whose dog did Matt Maloney kick?

    Okay here is what that is, and I challenge anyone to read this and think..oh he will be fine and back in just a couple of weeks..

    Shoulder Impingement Syndrome

    Shoulder impingement syndrome is caused by compression of the tendons of the rotator cuff between a part of the shoulder blade and the head of the humerus. This can become a chronic inflammatory condition that may lead to a weakening of the tendons of the rotator cuff, a situation that may result in a torn rotator cuff. Initial treatment for an impinged shoulder includes rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications (sometimes including steroid injections).

    He has had shoulder issues in the past as well, no?

    Sounds like the first step on the road to rotator cuff surgery. Ouch!

    Volquez has no business being the opening day starter of a team many predict to win the division. What can you do though?

    No chance Reds are winning the central this year. Pitching was mediocre before these injuries. Travis Wood is easily the ace of the staff.

    The sky is not falling folks. Three months ago many on here would have said Homer was our sixth starter. The drop off from him to LeCure or Maloney is minimal. Cueto is the real concern.

    To me the big concern is that our manager doesn't or can't buy a clue on pitching...that is my BIG concern...I mean really....Edision as your opening day starter? Chapman being used out of the pen instead of learning to me a starter in AAA and on and on and on and on...
