Rich Harden is dead, AKA, day to day.
I have always thought highly of Rich Harden and I have always rooted for him to be healthy and fulfill his seemingly vast potential as a pitcher. I don't hold his injury history against him at all, as some seem to do, but I am a bit frustrated as a fan to see him injured yet again. I did have the pleasure of meeting him once when he was in Toronto and he was one of the more pleasant professional athletes that I have ever interacted with. He was very polite and respectful and engaged in a fun banter with myself and two of my friends. Anyhow, he threw yesterday for the first time since he was hurt and did not die. However, Geren had this to say about Harden's session:
"He's day-to-day, so we will see how he feels tomorrow."
Of course this means that he is on his death bed and might never been seen again.
The article goes on to mention Duke's health status as well. At least it does not say that he is day to day.
And since I am a runner I am going to include running content. Lance Armstrong is running boston. I was a bit miffed, don't ask me why, when he beat my marathon PR. The thought of being able to say that I am a faster marathoner than Lance is kind of cool. He goes on to say that for the sake of keeping all sports clean that all athletes should be tested year round, otherwise some will be "picked on". Part of me thinks that he just wants an offseason in which cyclists could get away with doping, but the cynic in me is day to day.
