Per the Associated Press (via the Washington Post):
San Francisco Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong strained his back earlier this month while lifting weights and said Sunday he will miss at least the first 10 days of spring training workouts while he recovers.
[Insert great big sigh]
Boys, I understand this whole “Together, We’re Broken” slogan, but can you not get yourselves hurt before SPRING TRAINING even begins?
Am I going to have to break out the million square foot roll of bubble wrap so that you’ll be healthy by the time the season starts? Or even spring training games?
Because, please, cut it out with the injuries. The Giants don’t have an infinite fountain of starting pitchers. Nobody wants Jeff Suppan to be an option. Ever.
