Gabby, Eddy, and Donnelly all through their sim game w/o problems. Gabby and Donnelly will throw on Friday and Eddy on Saturday. Joe Torres is sidelined with back soreness, the ailment for 30yo+ players is going around. Hambone should play on Thursday. Benson has been cleared to pitch. The FWST reports of Eyre's early demise were indeed overstated, as I suggested yesterday, and he pitched today. Jennings may also pitch this weekend. Both Byrd and Boggs have been playing in the field so that's another positive though haven't heard how their particular ailments (knee, shoulder) are faring.
So save for Hurley, Benoit and Strop, who should pitch in a week or two, the MASH unit seems to be getting healty. Did I leave anyone out? Oh yeah, McCarthy. McCarthy, McCarthy, McCarthy. Well we won't know anything more until he tries to throw bullpens on Thursday. I say he will be fine (unless it is a _new_ injury..bleh).
One final note out of the Bay Area: The Dukes MRI came back negative, good news for him especially, and for Oakland, bad for the Rangers, though I wish no one to get stricken by injury. However, I wish the injury gods could just spread it around more equitably. Maybe it is just a ten-yr hint from them to get a new owner?
