"Twins slugger Josh Willingham is still experiencing soreness in his recovery from a broken left wrist, and is backing off from taking infield swings, Gardenhire said. Gardenhire also said OF Aaron Hicks is still feeling the effects from a concussion suffered Thursday night. ''I don't know how long it's going to be,'' Gardenhire said. ..."
Wha? The Hammer has a broken wrist... and is still taking swings? WTH? I'm sorry... that is absolutely news to me, the first I've heard of it. If his wrist is broken, why is he swinging at all? Anybody hear about this previously? Also, Gardy doesn't know when Hicks will be ok? Seems like par for the course...
Plenty of talk around the forum about roster mismanagement right now, and lots of good points being made there. My questions are:
- How has the Medical staff complicated the use of the DL/roster spots?
- What is the root of the problem with the staff's consistent inability to correctly diagnose injuries and accurately project recovery times?
- Who is in charge- Dr. Nick Riviera?
- What is going on?
- Where's the fix?
Figured I'd start a thread and toss those questions out there... really frustrated here as I don't expect this issue to be resolved any time soon.
