it was priceless...(not that I wish injury on anyone) But I had the sox on one TV upstairs at my townhouse and the flubs on mute on the other TV, when i hear that ****ing bum...and then another groan from the living room from two of my Flub fan roommates when nomar went down! I had to laugh my @$$ off.

Yeah, now see one of the subs tear it up. I dont think anyone could be hitting worse than Mr. Mia Hamm. I wonder what they will do for Mia Hamm day if hes out for that long????

They did lose Prior and Wood for significant parts of last season. I would say in reality that the Cubs have had their fair share of injuries.

Sounds a little like Torii Hunter and his "law of averages." And when has fortune EVER favored the Sox?

Many of us giggled with glee over the Prior and Wood injuries in ST, only to go through a very sobering experience with Buehrle and his "stress reaction."

I made a vow never to take joy in another team's injuries again. For one thing, this will give the Cubs another (unneccessary) excuse to suck.

Will someone please go to St. Louis and tell the Cardinals to wake the you-know-what up? As White Sox fans' consensus favorite National League team (per a WSI poll a year or two back), this is disquieting. And the fact that Zambrano is mowing them down (except for a Pujols HR) make me want to vomit. I can't stand that million dollar talent/ten cent brain tool!

The Cubs suffer injuries because they can't keep their players healthy. We don't suffer a lot of injuries(in general) and when we do they're relatively freak injuries, ie running into wee willie and hurting a knee or diving for a ball at first base and tearing a tricep. Give Herm whatever it takes whenever his contract expires. And Roger Bossard. Wow, the Sox have some of the best non-baseball personel in baseball.

Boy, and we complain about how Ozzie handles the bullpen...

You'd think Dust-rag would have learned something during ST this year. Even the Cub-loving media was blaming him for burning out Balsa and the Messiah with high pitch counts (125-135 several times) over the last two years.

But I guess that's what you have to do when your bullpen is full of pyromaniacs.

As good as he's been (unfortunatly) the last couple of seasons, there has been talk about Johhny Baker keeping him in games too long, getting the pitch count up, and that he's basically an injury waiting to happen. True or not, it's gotta wear on the arm over the course of the season if a pitcher is consistantly throwing 110+ pitches each outing.

Tomorrow you can tell them, "Yeah, a lot of retired players take BP and travel with the team. Just like a lot of All-Star shortstops need the training staff to carry them off the field so they can ice their marbles."

These knowlegable Cubs fans in my office who were spouting little Cubs stuff (pitchers batting over .400, referring to Ramirez as A-Ram etc.) were talking about the Cubs facing Zito on Thursday. No, said another, "I think Zito went to the Braves. I don't know who's pitching on Thursday."

Ouch! I just saw that and it doesn't look good. Levine just said on Mike & Mike that 4-6 weeks is the best case scenario. He reported that Nomar was still in excruciating pain 45 minutes after the game. There's a 9 a.m. MRI and they should know more after that.

As I've said before, I like Nomar so I'm not going to celebrate an injury to him. I feel bad for him.

I am reminded of all the discussions and debates on these boards about 15 months ago regarding the possible trade of Ordonez and the Sox either getting Garciaparra or Randy Johnson in return. Now.....two of them still have serious health issues and the third one is fading rather quickly into "over paid" land.

I'll take Dye, Iguchi and El Duque.....thank you.

I agree wholeheartedly... I caught all sorts of crap last year when people (mostly Red Sox fans) would ask why the Sox didn't make the playoffs and I said it was because our two best hitters were out for half of the season. Better to see inexcusable suckiness than injury-induced suckiness.

By my calculations, that puts Neifi Perez at SS and Hairston at 2B until either Nomar or Walker get healthy again? Any options for them? Are they going to have to trade the Messiah?

I don't like to see injuries, also afriad of karma (especially with some of the players we have), but anyone that gets injured on their team will just be used as an excuse for the Flubs, not like our team last year. Last year, the team that was deemed to win it all by the experts was not declared a failure after finishing third in their division, after all, their pitchers were hurt for a period of time. The Sox on the other hand, can never beat the Twins, even though we lost both Maggs and Big Frank during the big stretch

Yeah, I thought he was a gamer too....until he started mailing it in after returning to the BoSox last year, then told them he'd probably need days off down the stretch, but if he was traded he could probably stick things out.

Prima donna is the word. By no means do I wish injury or anything ill on the guy, but I'm not exactly rooting for him to make a miraculous comeback. I'd rather root for a decent guy like Billy Koch to regain effectiveness than another over-egoed tool.

If you believe in karma and the baseball gods, then Nomar got somewhat of what he deserved.

Anyone see the parallels between Nomahhhhh and Maggs and hteir contract situations. Both got greedy and turned down guaranteed money at some point in time. Shortly afterwards, both suffered tough injuries. Both have inflated egos and think their worth is/was a lot more. Both started crying when they're names came up in trades last year.

If you're into karma, then maybe both these players shouldn't have been greedy or if they wanted to be, they should have not complained and whined about it in the papers.

Imagine saying $60 mill. over 5 years isn't enough. Can't wait to see what Nomar gets next year and also see Magglio's stupid contract voided (though I hope the Tigers have to eat all 5 years for being such dummies.)

Back during the 2003-04 off-season, there was constant discussion of trading Nomar for Magglio.

I consider my position justified.

FWIW - Bob Ryan hypothesizes that perhaps Nomar was shopping at McLiar's pharmacy, based circumstantially on a significant offseason change in his physique and a serious of different injuries that suggest his body's just breaking down.

Canseco also said he thought Nomar was possibly a Juicer. It wouldn't surprise me. He showed no power in the minors, until he met Canseco himself in Boston in the mid 90s - then he developes size, strength AND power all at once.

There have been a lot of whispers about Nomar in Boston concerning this over the past 3 years and some of it was coming from the clubhouse. Theo moved one known steriod user 2 years ago and I have a hunch this also played into Boston's handling of him.

This cover on SI started all the whispers
