This sets them up for serious issues with degenerative arthritis at a young age. Huff, Gibbs, Wragge, Hanson will probably all be hobbling around looking at joint replacement surgery in their 30s or 40s. Food for thought.

Post of the year, to be surpassed later by my annual call for more zone.

It's sad because he started off so well. Need to get him healthy and set up for a good offseason of S&C. Even if Patton is back we are going to need a good year from Hegner.

Followup on guys playing hurt this year: Mac said on the podcast that Cole had his other knee scoped after the season, IZ has his arm in a sling for an elbow injury, Zach is taking a few months off for his ankle and knee to heal up, Toby is out for 3-4 months after surgery.

Sounds like we need to focus on building depth next year since injuries seem to be inevitable, huh?
