    Rule #1: Never trust the Cubs' front office for news on injuries.

    A person would have to agree. I mean, they did continue to string Cub fans along with Prior and Wood...

    Could you give an example? They never lead people on about Prior and Wood; truth of the matter there was no one could really figure out what was wrong, and still to this day dont have much of a clue with Prior...but they were always pretty much up front with how long they would be out, etc.

    Are you serious??? You mean back in 2004 (or '05) when Prior "would be ready for Day 1 of the season, don't worry!!!" Ticket sales get a nice bump. And then Spring Training comes and "We're not sure when Mark will be ready to go."

    Just because we're told that no one knows whats wrong with Prior doesn't mean no one knows what's wrong with Prior. I loved when the magical shoulder tear showed up out of nowhere. All these radiation experts must have been sleeping when they read all those MRI's.

    Ticket sales got a bump from a report on Prior? Give me a break. Tickets sales get a bump for the Cubs when the "Tickets on Sale Today" sign gets put up in the box office.

    Yes I can "Rothschield" look at his record with the Cubs and injuries. Over 75% of the pitchers, Highest in the Major league since he became the pitching coach has been on the DL or injured so that they miss a start or two.

    So how does that make the point that you should never trust the Cubs front office on injury news?

    Unfortunately for the Cubs, most of the 'Rotator Cuff Tendinitis' cases this year have actually been an early diagnosis for Minor Rotator Cuff Tear.

    If he gets bad news from one doctor (or three), just go find another one that will tell you "it's fine". It works well....just ask Shawn Merriman.

    Did I hear somewhere that he first hurt the shoulder getting up off the bench?

    Maybe the water cooler fought back. He sure seems to throw some tantrums in the dugout.

    I love Big Z, I really do. I just wish his brain worked a 10th as well as his arm.
