    So how does that bode for the NLCS if they close this series out without him?

    When exactly did he injure it?

    Sounds to me like he'll be on the DL. With his delivery, you just can't chance it. As DatDude would say, "No bueno".
    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.

    Fearless predictions for the next round: Leake for Cueto, Cingrani for Simon. Leake b/c they'll need a #4SP and Cingrani to be a long/emergency guy.

    Time for Bailey to be a man, Latos and Arroyo need to keep on keepin' on.

    Been reading on oblique strains. If that's what it is, they'll have to win the whole thing without him.

    Curt Schilling laughs at this diagnosis.

    If they don't DL him but rather just don't activate him as eligible for the next round, would he be eligible for the Series (if he was able to go)? I know if you are DL'ed you have to skip a round, but not sure how it works if a player simply isn't rostered to begin with.

    I'd be surprised if he pitches again this season.

    If the Reds win tonight, they can wait awhile to decide.

    I've been reading that guys take 6 weeks to recover fully from an oblique strain, but I'm not sure about the "mild" part.

    I thought that the word "Oblique" might be forthcoming when the reports from game one talked about a "rib cage issue."

    Yes, that's the operative word indeed
