Poor Huston

It's perhaps some kind of indication where my true loyalties lie that I was really sad that Huston is out with bicep tendonitis. Isn't this what happened to him last year or two years ago? Or maybe that was forearm tendonitis. I also still get excited when I hear his entrance music and root for him when even when he's making saves against the Giants. :P

I'm mostly indifferent to whether the Giants make the playoffs or not anyway. It would be nice just to see all the babies get some playoff experience, but they've already overachieved this season IMO. I'm very easy to please as a sports fan. Perhaps this is because pretty much every team I start watching is in the crapper at the time and I have low expectations.

Buster Posey has been called up as a backup in case something happens to Eli Whiteside as Molina is still wounded. I'm thinking that eventually they're going to have to start Posey if Molina doesn't recover because Eli has to get a rest at some point, right? I wouldn't make Sandoval squat for 9 innings and Posey's gotta do better than Garko.

Mostly I'm just excited to see what he can do. He also has that whole Marc-Edouard Vlasic thing going where he's young, but very calm and mature.

this is why the leafs vex me! when i started watching them they were good!

They were at least making the playoffs when I started watching hockey. :) I remember Mats completely taking over a playoff game. *sigh*

The article I read said Street had never missed time with biceps tendonitis before. When he was with the A's, I seem to remember it was more groin pulls and random muscle strains.

Found it! It was an "irritated ulnar nerve". I just remember it was something to do with his forearm.

I want to see Buster Posey in a game. :(

Well... I think we're only going to see him if there's an injury or the Giants fall out of it, so I'm okay with waiting until next season to see him.

If Huston is out with this for more than a week or so there will be much grumbling on my part. I don't want him to break!

I should probably go upgrade the toenail mojo* and slop on a fresh coat of purple polish.


* - Sounds gross when phrased that way but has occasionally worked to make a team do well. This summer they are purple (I will not polish them any other color) JUST FOR HUSTON.

They've been pretty ambiguous about when he'll be back. Hopefully Morales doesn't do too well in his absence. Last thing he needs is to be displaced again.

He needs to get better fast. I miss the tongue!
