BLOG: Injuries Can Torpedo A Season Before It Starts

As I look at the Baltimore Orioles season, I know that health will be key for them to have any kind of success.  What’s more, they have guys like Vladimir Guerrero, Derek Lee and Brian Roberts who are question marks because of injury concerns.  Even if all these guys are healthy, we are hopeful for the postseason but its unlikely.  On the other hand you have the St Louis Cardinals, who probably lost pitcher Adam Wainwright for the season with an elbow injury.  All Wainwright has done is win 39 games the last two seasons with an era well under 3.00.  You cannot replace that production.  The Cardinals postseason hopes took a direct hit from a torpedo today.
