His hip has been bothering him since his Aug. 26 start.

This season is hopeless anyway, just as long as this not a long term problem and Gavin is healthy for spring training. I'm very much looking forward to having Buehrle, Peavy, Floyd, and Danks in our starting rotation next year!

Those wanting to see Hudson get a start might just get their wish.

Terrible news...
Here's to a sound recovery and a good off season.

Why did he even pitch last night if he was hurt?

Count me one of those. I know Hudson's already pitched a lot of innings this year and they want to watch that, but they should give him a pitch count and let him start. It would be against Minny. I'd like to see that.

It's in his competitive nature to go out there. Most pro athletes are that way.

I commend him for trying, but I hope that he takes it easy and recovers for next season. Who knows, maybe he'll be ok for the playoffs.

They were still in it.

I'll be at that game (9/21), and I'd love to see the kid get a chance. All he's done this year is step up to the next level of challenge and excel. After seeing Torres get the stuffing knocked out of him last start, I hope Ozzie and Coop give the start to Hudson.

Yea they should shut him down. I mean we all know the Sox aren't 100% out of it yet but not point in risking further injury. Plus it would give one of the younger guys a chance to start.

Shades of Britt Burns. After a rough April, Gavin was our most reliable starter. Let's hope this a short term problem.

Usually my attitude is "walk it off" but not with pitching.
Gavin, we need you to be 100%, don't risk further injury.

Hip injuries are on the rise in MLB:

Man, I hope it's nothing like Britt Burns.:o: IIRC, Burns had a degenerative hip condition. So, I'm not going to get panicked quite yet that Floyd is going to be a repeat of anything like that.

Just shut him down for the rest of the season. There's no point in risking anyt further damage.

I wouldn't be opposed to shutting him down. Let him get healthy and give Hudson a start or two.

He sucked last night anyway.

No need to put more innings on his arm this year anyway. Give him some rest. If we sweep the first Tigers series, then we can think about bringing him back this year.

Dammit. I'm not going to see him pitch this season, then. :whiner:

I wish him all the best for his recovery. He was very reliable for us this year. No need to make him pitch through the pain.

Agreed, let's concede the race and plan for next year. This is almost like 2004, a lot of moves were made but I think they will help us more next year than this.

That's what I was thinking.Except that Burns's hip condition was congenital and had been with him his whole life. I haven't heard of Floyd having this problem before.

This one's out of reach...hope they shut him down...what a bummer...

We definitely need him healthy if they are going to do anything...

They were still in it.

Teal notwithstanding,that;s exactly why Floyd pitched last night. WSI complains that the White Sox are just giving up every time they lost (now and forever past tense) at the Metrodome or lose on Sunday and then complains when players don't give up when they are in pain.

This season has been shaped in large part by Quentin going down and never getting back on track after seeming to find his stroke before his injury. Peavy hasn't pitched yet because of an injury. Floyd is down. It is amazing the White Sox are as close as they are, especially when the Tigers have been winning so many close and late games.

You don't give up on the season until you're mathematically eliminated, but I my mode right now is optimism for next year.
