    Re: Why Do The Sox Keep Getting Hurt?

    I am not sure it has anything to do with the good 'ole days versus the modern game. Let's take the guys on the DL right now.

    Hill and Dice K both tore elbow ligiments requiring Tommy John surgery. Chances are good that they were pitching with some level of pain prior to the ligiments snapping.

    Lowrie injured his shoulder in a collision and in fact tried playing with it and shut it down because it affected his performance. Buccholz tried to pitch through the back issues and was shut down to avoid his compemsating in his mechanics for the pain and causing a greater injury. In both cases good pre-emptive moves. If Buch would not have been shut down in the "good ole' days" maybe it is a good thing it isn't the good ole days these days.

    Crawford pulled a hammy. Guys have been doing that as long as there has been baseball and they have been sat down to avoid level 3 rupture forever.

    Guys are playing hurt right now. Pedroia and Youk are just the two we know about. 

    Baseball is a marathon and the ability/depth to handle and overcome injury is part of the process in winning the marathon.

    Any year you don't have the level of injury we have is a lucky one, any year you have as many as we did last year an unlucky one.

    I consider baseball to be the least physical sport of all the four major professional sports.  They play a long season, but the injuries in football and hockey are much more serious.  Baseball players don't suffer as many career ending injuries like they do in football and hockey.   Even injuries to basketball players can be much more serious than in baseball, (Rondo this year).

    Posted by susan250[/QUOTE]You are absolutely right about hockey and football because of the elevated contact having a great risk of injury.

    But basketball? Rondo was a freak injury and just this week we saw Pulios with the Cards suffer a fractured forearm and wrist. Basketball has a higher rate of knee injury but baseball has far more issues with shoulders and elbows.

    The drain of the season (162 regular season games) can not be discounted but you are right that it can not be compared to contact sports.

    Thats because hockey and football ARE contact sport..They are going to have more traumatic injuries due to the nature of the games..Baseball players have more sport appropriate related injuries, some more serious ie; TommyJohn or just the occasional hammy or shoulder etc...As bad as it was, Rondo's accident is NOT the norm to camapre to..

So many "broken Tommy Johns"... They could have all saved their elbows if only they had learned to stretch their quads.
