  • Harden to miss start this weekend; Duch goes to the DL

    Here we go again, the infamous revolving door DL campaign similar to what we saw last year. Harden has a shoulder strain and Justin is on the shelf with injuries of his own to deal with. Let's hope for a speedy recovery!

      Rich Harden...

      The good news is the A's rotation will be stronger when Harden comes back...the bad news is, his name is still Dick Harden

        Just like us getting to know what a DiNardo or Gaudin can do a year ago, we will see if Greg Smith, Eveland, Gio Gonzalez could be counted on for 30 starts at the MLB level. Unfortunately Harden didn't last long enough for us to move him for propects.

          The A's put Harden on the DL retroactive to 04/03 so he could come of a week from today.

            That's what I'm saying... It just blows my mind to think how good Harden COULD BE.

              Indeed. I'm waiting for those 2 months that he'll get healthy, go 8-0 with a 0.85 ERA, and is practically unhittable. Unfortunatly, he may not be able to start 8 games all freakin' year. It's ridiculous.

                Rich Harden claims:

                many of his medical issues over the past few seasons have to do with the fact that some people in the A's organization were playing to his hockey sensibility of playing through the pain.
                while growing up in Canada I heard Rich actually played some hockey :noidea.... I can not believe that he could actually lace up a pair of skates without tweaking an oblique muscle, much less play a contact sport with how frail he is....

                  Unfortunately for us, after RH's latest set back, BB won't get the boatload of talented prospects that RH could've fetched before the injury. Team's are once again skeptical and for good reason.

                    Time to trade Street then make Harden the closer. If Harden can't stay off the DL after pitching 3-5 innings a week, then he needs to hang 'em up.

                      I agree. With all the problems the A's have had with Duch, Chavez, Crosby, Harden and Steet I'd have to say those incidents aren't accidents.

                        players are hurt all over the league...the bottom line is that spring training is a joke... the players are not in shape... they move up to colder climates when the season starts and they pull hamstrings, muscles,etc. etc. .... they don't make baseball players like they used to....pitch counts and such is crap.the modern ballplayer is weak and puny and pampered .... they will not play if they have a hangnail... check out how many pitches Marichal and Spahn threw in this game:

                        Marichal threw 227 pitches !!!!!

                          It didn't help Harden before. He came off the DL to pitch in the bullpen, then threw a number of innings before re-injuring himself. Dude is just too fragile. I've given up on that guy.
