    Re: Lavarnaway called up/Youk to the DL

    Bucholz has an  spinal cord injury that is very rare for an adult to have. It usually affects children.

     Jenks has always been overweight so he has always been a candidate for a back injury ( do you blame that on our FO?).
     
    Drew is out with a shoulder problem. ( not a back problem)
     
    Lowrie has been sidelined with nerve damage to his shoulder.
     
    Scutaro has a stiff back ( you can get that from sleeping the wrong way. Very common occurence.

    Look at the myriad of injuries that other teams have had this season. Do they all have inept conditioning staff members?

    Count the average back injuries on each team then come back.

    If Lavarnway hits ahead of Crawford in the lineup, it should be the ultimate in wake up calls for the overpaid left fielder.

    Go look at your comment on page #1 and tell me where you stressed BACK INJURIES. You were referring to generic injuries. The listing that I provided was for generic injuries. Only three back injuries on Red Sox:

    Scutaro - stiff back - huge problem, right?
    Bucholz - genetic ?, heritary?, rare - not due to conditioning
    Jenks - father time caught up with the rotund man - conditioning? No.

    Bummer. Glad to see the kid get a shot.

    Unhappy about Youk.

    Spending more time reading the DL list than the box scores. 

    Watching key players go down. Again.

    This is not fun. Just so you know.

    With Youk and Papi out I think we should bring up Middlebrooks, Lavarnway, Kalish and Iglesias and send down CC and Jed, then trade McD for a bat boy to be named later.

    They need two call ups. If Scutaro is still unavailable, this team has no back up infielder.

    No, buch's injury is not to the spinal cord.

    A stress fracture, medically known as Spondylolysis, is the most common overuse injury of the lower back in sport. This condition is classified as either a bone stress reaction or a stress fracture of the lower back. It is especially common in growing adolescents and symptoms are often related to the 'growth spurt'. Cricket fast bowlers appear to be particularly susceptible to Spondylolysis, with a reported prevalence of 55% in some teams.

    At the base of the back there are five lumbar vertebrae. The most common site for Spondylolysis is the bottom-most lumbar vertebra, called L5, where the mobile lumbar spine meets the fixed pelvis. This is because this vertebra is subject to most stress during sports.

    The lumbar vertebra consists of a round block of bone at the front, known as the vertebral body, and a bony ring at the back. Three bony 'process' stick out from this ring and provide a place for muscles to attach. The area that is affected by Spondylolysis is a part of the bony ring known as the 'Pars'. It is not clear why, but the Pars area appears to be a weak spot in the vertebra.

    Re: Lavarnaway called up/Youk to the DL

    Marc Normandin:

    Lavarnway hit well in Double-A for the second year in a row, with a .284/.360/.510 line that included 14 homers and a 22 percent strikeout rate. After his promotion to Triple-A Pawtucket, Lavarnway went crazy, hitting .301/.385/.608 with 16 homers in 239 plate appearances, and just a 23 percent whiff rate. He hasn't hit as well as of late, with a .125 batting average over his last 10 games, but his strikeout rate has remained constant and he has another three homers in that stretch, so this is likely more the ebb and flow of BABIP during a season than it is an actual struggle.

    While his defense isn't considered major league ready just yet -- there are elements of game calling that he still needs to work on -- he has thrown out 35 percent of baserunners this year, and, as Alex Speier recently noted, he has improved behind the plate:

    In his time as a professional, however, Lavarnway has achieved what members of the organization describe as little short of stunning gains as a defensive catcher. He has become more athletic behind the plate, resulting in across-the-board improvements, particularly in his technique.

    It may not be the beginning of the Ryan Lavarnway era, as he is likely to be in the minors once again in 2012 in order to work on his catching, but his bat is likely major league ready. The International League is not the PCL, and Lavarnway's line is well above the league average of .260/.330/.401, so don't be surprised if he hits well right off the bat. The majors are a different game than even Triple-A, but Lavarnway's approach, pitch recognition, and power should serve him well the rest of the way.

    The point being made ( context) was that the Bucholz injury-Spondylolysis - was due to a rare abnormality that is not often prevalent in adults. It is not the result of a lack of conditioning by Red Sox staff. I just don't approve of a Pied Piper blaming the FO for everything under the Sun and seeing so many sheep follow along. Kim seems to have more balls than many in here.

    On the forum earlier this year I compared this year's minor league numbers of Ryan Lavarnway to those of Mike Carp, Seattle's 25-year-old DH-of-the-future.

    Since his last call-up, Carp has posted a .371/.405/.619/1.024 line with six homeruns and 26 RBI in 26 games. Carp holds MLB's longest current hitting streak at 17 games.

    The Red Sox would be fortunate to get that production from Lavarnway.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Lavarnaway called up/Youk to the DL : It's amazing how many injuries Red Sox players get during the course of a season.  You can look around the league on almost every team in the majors and never see so many to key players. It certainly makes one wonder what these guys do for conditioning and why they can't seem to make it through a full season.
    Posted by craze4sox[/QUOTE]

    I definitely agree with you.  Not sure why they always have so many injuries every year.  This isn't as bad as last year, but is definitely trending towards last year.  Additionally, this year they have so many of their pitchers out.  It definitely isn't a good trend.
