This is getting old. Seems like all my favorite teams are done in by injuries even before the season gets going. Over half the Yankees team is on the dl and the season just started.

The other halves bats should go on the damn DL, they are totally injured.

the entire league is hurt. the age of specialization has its risks.

I would be surprised if they have as many key players out but I haven't looked around the league. Giancarlo, Didi, Tulo, Severino, Betances, Andujar, Hicks, CC. I don't count Ellsbury because he's been injured for a decade.

Lot of research on injuries, and i'm not sure there's a great answer "why" yet.

Bigger, stronger athletes than ever before. To me this is the most important. More stress on the body every night than there was 30 years ago.

Specialization early.

Overwork throughout their youth and career.

Probably more to add I can't think of.

I think it’s that simple. So fined tuned and 100% effort.

Close. I said no one should get dehydrated. Given the science available to today's teams and athletes, getting dehydrated is a preventable sin.
I believe you blamed the coaching staff for it though.

Yeah like I really trust the Yankees medical team to be right on Andujar being able to avoid surgery on a torn labrum :eek:, btw Bird had this injury avoided surgery and then needed the surgery and missed all of the 2016 seson.
