a surplus with the way BMac is coming on ........

Lots of non-love for the sCrUBS in today's Cubune. Rick Morrissey has a hilarious column that mocks the sCrUBS startling lack of candor w/r/t their injury reports by offering a "translation guide" between the real diagnosis and the sCrUBS diagnosis. A few samples:

Real Diagnosis________________ sCrUB Diagnosis
Inoperable cancer_____________ Gingivitis
Broken leg ____________________Food poisoning by something he ate
Delirium Tremens_______________ Pine-tar poisoning

On the same page, Phil Rogers rips into the overuse of Prior and Wood early in their careers as a possible blame for the frequent injuries they now suffer. He even offers a nod to Sox trainer Herm Schneider, a constant on the south side training staff, vs. the revolving door of trainers & staff for the sCrUBS.

And in the other paper in town, Richard Roeper ponders why so many pitchers today, including Prior & Wood but many others, with all the advances in training, conditioning, etc., are such wusses to only go 200-250 innings per year and 5-7 innings per game, while starting pitchers from 20-40 years ago routinely finished what they started 70%-80% of the time, and often pitched 275-350 innings per year.
