Harden Out For All of 2012 (Fanposts Only Day-To-Day)

First of all, don't worry: Fanposts have not undergone any surgeries or embalmings. A network-wide technical problem has rendered them "day to day," and they should be back soon. The same, however, cannot be said of pitcher Rich Harden.

As Susan Slusser notes in this morning's Chronicle, last week Harden had shoulder surgery for a torn capsule that he says dates back to reaching for a comebacker in April, 2007. Pitching through this injury, which is analogous to the ones that have recently felled Johan Santana and Dallas Braden, purports to explain Harden's low velocity in 1st innings last season. So Rich, like the A's, is rebuilding.
