Ten of the DL trips were for players injured last year and re the insured it says but they re injures agreement this year none of them were missed Lackey Jenks Dice-K Crawford etc. A number of injuries were phantom -- trips such as do Bryant. We had adequate depth for many injuries Ross for Crawford. Middle Brooks for you Syria -- for middle Brooks. A service. From Bailey the only real significant -- finish but. I beg to differ okay -- I I'm I'm just exploited to this where. You get a third baseman. Got fifteen homers. Okay and and in 74 games had fifty plus runs batted in. He's a key key offensive weapon on your team. Yeah well when did this happen this only happened recently over the past few weeks the Cleveland series middle Brooks middle Brooks right right now we're I missed a little but it time here and -- and right but that's just want. Poppies mr. -- well it's a great actor Mike but I mean I think it's a fact I know I -- how about the second best player in all of baseball last year. How for almost the entire year is that not a key injury well. -- guys Democrat wait a minute but aren't they not significant my aunt rose's third in runs score and I know that's a little bit misleading because they've lost 11 run it -- it but if they were first by a mile which is what they would be if all their offensive components were there. Then maybe they wouldn't have lost all those games. Well of course -- as -- as Jon Lester been out as Josh Beckett missed significant time clip buckles was I'll briefly but is still -- 21 starts so. I I look back -- pretty much. It's just that pitching it's that starting pitching where you can say without any question that the number one reason for their lack of success was a lack of performance spider starters no question about that. You're gonna singer Toby injuries weren't huge factor on this team. Well I just look at some of the other teams have overcome injury problems. So every team deals with injuries the -- -- have had a ton of injuries it's a factor Michael -- -- disagreement there -- just huge -- like that -- the major out or another -- that's a little marijuana use and it as -- and that's and that's the main reason they suck this year. I've I've I've said over and over again it's the starting pitching is the reason it -- But you can't -- say that is helped. When three of your four best players. Offensively. Are out. -- assist that's. That's -- April Ortiz play the majority this season is now alien probably be back of the steam was in contention he's been out for a month off for retirement the what's the record it in the month he's announcement tomorrow.
