    Madson to have TJ surgery

    http://cincinnati.com/blogs/reds/201...ck-for-madson/

    Sounds like the typical pre-TJ remarks, and cinreds21 is usually spot-on. But the line that the Reds aren't overly concerned gives me some hope. Oh please....

    Is that a failure on the part of whoever performed the physical?

    You gotta think that elbows and shoulders were double and triple checked during the physicals.

    This is probably a spring thing and an injury occurred after the physical.

    Hard not to think the worst here. What a bummer.

    Not terrified. Hard to miss what they never had, and the presence Marshall is a great fallback.

    I guess the "if we stay healthy" clauses can be dropped before Opening Day. It's always bugged me that folks use that language and the truth is nobody stays healthy; it's just a matter of how many injuries you get, how serious are they and to whom?

    This is a bummer way to start the year for our Reds. My concern is that they've babied him throughout Spring Training and he still hasn't gotten better. Forget the rhetoric, I look at the facts and that one bothers me more than anyone's quotes.

    And there it is. Was holding out hope -- what a bummer indeed. Wonder if they've got insurance on him.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I would imagine Marshall will close. The question than becomes what do they do with Chapman. All indications are they would like him to start, does this injury change their minds.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    To answer my own question, it appears that they don't have insurance on him. That's 10% of our payroll right down the drain.

    I like Marshall in a mulitple inning role... How about Arendondo as the closer? He looks to be rounding back into pre-TJ form. I hate this about Madson! Hopefully this is the only set back of the season.
    I know a lot of people are talking about his on-base percentage (.308 in 2008), but I like to think more in terms of him his in-scoring position percentage. - Our Beloved Manager
