Definitely not good. This quote is scary,

"To me, it's something that's going to be with me for the rest of my career, so I either learn to pitch with it, learn to deal with it or I'm done."

The only possible redeeming thing about this is that Garland has been known to say some weird things before.

This isn't the first time we've heard about Garland having a "knot" in his shoulder.

I'm not that worried.

<half teal> Garland's just trying to kill his own trade value because he wants to stay in Chicago <half teal>

I think every professional pitcher does to some degree, the throwing motion is simply unnatural.

He's mentioned having a knot before and he's been able to play through it. I just think that Friday was a bad day for him. No more no less. Happens to every pitcher.

If he's had it since Spring Training, its something that may or may not bother him each day he's given the ball. That being said, why would it come up now if it isn't an injury?

Certainly Kerry Wood and Mark Prior would never have this...:rolleyes:

A bad day or a knot in their shoulder? We'll see. But i'm not overly concerned about this. A good bit of rest and hopefully he'll come out firing against Baltimore.

Almost certainly, even if they're not in pain, there's going to be a little swelling and inflamation around the shoulder after a start. It's a pretty manageable condition, especially with the resources a Major League pitcher has at his disposal.

Jon has always had a real easy, fluid looking motion that hopefully doesn't put too much added stress on his shoulder. Maybe the condition resolves on its own.

Excuse me? I asked a rhetorical "Why would Jon mention it unless it did bother his performance on Friday?" sort of question. I happen to think Jon is also a long-term solution to rebuilding this team.

Sheesh. Talk about getting a bit hair triggered.

Hey but this is WSI, might as well get used to it until he's signed a new contract, whenever that is.
