I do believe that there is something to all of the Dodgers soft tissue damage. Mike Soscia's tragic illness website did a study and the number of these injuries went up something like 30% during the trainers tenure.
This is not uncommon. Green Bay is about to rework the entire strength and conditioning and training staff due to the same problem.
Remember when the Kings lead the league in man game lost consecutive years, then fired the entire training staff? The injuries seem to lessen right after the new staff was brought in.
Sometimes its not even the trainer's fault. If the player wants to play and management wants them to play, then there is nothing the trainer can do but try and work with it. Halladay with the Phillies was obviously injured and the trainers knew about it. Yet, they couldn't stop him from playing.
Then there is the problem of teams being cheap with their training staff. Minor league baseball teams around the country are notoriously bad with this. Then they wonder why all these young guys get hurt. Heck, there is a good chunk of major league teams that still haven't hired a full time massage therapist. You invest millions on these players, you should want them to be in peak physical condition.
Hope they have more runs left in those bats tomorrow. Ryu had a difficult outing, but thankfully the offense was on tonight. Now let's see them wrap this up the same night the Kings open at home against the Rangers.
