I love how virtually every post splits into two camps: the sky is falling; the sky is just fine. (For the record, I am among the former.)
I must be in my own camp... I went from feeling ill to wanting to cry.
I'm crying with you!
If Yankees fearless leader Cashman said.... He's devastated...How can we view this as anything but tragic.....
Cashman said he’s “devastated” and called the diagnosis “tragic.” If there’s a silver lining it comes in two parts: 1. The Yankees believe the problem can be repaired arthroscopically, which is a less invasive procedure; and 2. There is no damage to the rotator cuff.
don't cry- Jeter's still playing like he was in his mvp mid 20's...we still have the CC, Cano and Grandyman. Heck even AP is coming out of retirement. There's no point being upset over someone we never really saw in the first place. But Cash has alot of making up to do in the summer, and get an arm to help this rotation.
....So Chris Carpenter and Curt Schilling both had this surgery and made a career out of it. Carpenter has played better every year since the surgery. Schilling had an 11 to 10 o'clock tear!(thats huge) Pineda's is an anterior tear so it can be done with a scope which makes a huge difference. Not to mention how far medical science has come, just look at Colon and the fact that the Yankees will make sure their young pticher gets the best treatment. Pinedas injury is not as serious as the pitchers mentioned.
Obviously an injury to a pitchers shoulder is scary stuff, but please grow up and quit acting like Pineda will never pitch again because you heard that it is impossible to recover from a torn labrum. So quit whinning, be postive, and back your team up! God bless Pineda and his recovery
