( from a very good article by Adam Kaufman all sox followers can read in Boston.com today 7/17/13) quote:
" It’s certainly a testament to the Red Sox pitching staff that the club has maintained its position atop the American League largely without Buchholz and absent what Jon Lesterhistorically provides, but that’s not something Buchholz should take solace in. That’s especially true with the trade deadline looming and the Sox wondering if they need another front-line starter because John Lackey, Ryan Dempster, and Felix Doubront – yes, you read that correctly – can only shoulder so much of the load. The Sox deserve to know where they stand with their best pitcher and right now that’s an irritating mystery."
does privacy rights apply to an injury incurred by a professional athlete while doing his job, which injury was widely broadcasted and is nation wide known?...
furthermore, it is a standard practice to keep updating such kind of injuries in any sport...
Does anybody in baseball business ignore that the Buck uncertainty is a huge handicap in Sox chances for making a valuable trade?....
My most sincere take is to give 4 or 5 expendable prospects and huge cash consideration for Cliff Lee and Garza or something alike...
Besides Buchholz, Im sure the team knows exactly whats going on with him medically. Thats who needs to know. Us fans and the media dont have to be told exactly whats going on every step of the way, Although the Sox have been pretty open about is progress and any setbacks.
They will make a decision based on Clays health and make a move if needed.
I am not sure thats true SP. The team may NOT know exactly how his condition will behave. They may have put a label on it (bursitis) but the condition behaves differently in different people. Response to treatment varies, so there remains some uncertaintly about when (or IF) Buchholtz will return this year.
Thats what I was saying. They know as much as they can know right now. Im sure they are aware that things could change and thats why I said based on his health they will make a move if they need too, knowing that his shoulder could react either way.
Maybe my choice of words (exactly) was a bit misleading, but what you said is what I was trying to get across. I figured most would understand what I meant though.
