A blister?! Obviously there is no chance for the Indians anytime soon but this is just plain ridiculous.

Have you ever tried to control a baseball with a blister on your finger? Didn't think so.

It's a pretty common thing for pitchers.

Jeez, isn't that a record by now?

If not, what IS the record, for crying out loud? :?:

I played ball throughout school, so I have tried throwing a ball with a blister. I wouldn't expect someone to land on a disabled list for it. Lose the attitude, please. Anonymity doesn't afford you the right to be presumptuous.

Any other player might not, but a pitcher who has to put precise spin on it and etc..

One of our guys went on the DL for the same thing a couple of years ago (IIRC, it was either Danks or Floyd). I'm sure you said the same thing then.

A while ago, I joked with a friend that he would reach 15 times on the DL if he played long enough. It looks like I could see that joke of a prophecy come true.
