Joel Sherman of the New York Post had the tweet of the day earlier when he said that now is that time of the spring when all of those guys who said that they were in the best shape of their lives are breaking down. I literally lol’d.
“I still get random sharp pains in it when I make certain moves,” he said. “It’s still a pretty big area that’s sore, so they can’t really inject one spot (with cortisone). It’s very frustrating … What’s frustrating is that I was in the best shape of my life and this happened.”
OK, laughing out loud is easier in the abstract than it is when the concept is applied to an actual player. This, in turn, kind of sucks. Obliques are tough injuries. It doesn’t take much to tweak them and then you’re back to square one. Hart is going to be counted on in what looks to be an all-in kind of season for the Brewers, so it’s better that they nurse him along slowly and make sure he’s healthy rather than trying to rush him back.
