You’ll be shocked to learn that Rich Harden has had another setback

Rich Harden AP

Rich Harden was shut down with an injured lat approximately eight second after he put his glove on for the first time this spring.  Then the initial time the A’s thought it might take for him to get better was extended. Now, Susan Slusser reports, Harden has had another setback and he has been shut down indefinitely.

Harden had been hoping to throw off a mound tomorrow, but that’s not happening. He’s going to see a doctor today.
The upside: his doctor’s customer loyalty club card was only one punch away from a free surgery, so this will probably take care of it.

        It seems like the lineup you just posted WOULD be the all-injured team

        Craig, if the app store browsing wasn’t going to get me fired, the laughing out loud certainly will

        My laughter is proof that even a joke that I find overused can be funny when I don’t see it coming.
