The Wickman Update

Posted by Matt on May 3, 2007

Atlanta Braves’ pea-shooter Bob Wickman was placed on the 15-day Disabled List on April 30 with “tendinitis in his upper right back,” which, quite frankly, I did not even know was possible. I tend to think roster moves like this, especially after a poor outing, are merely to save face and try to pin a reason on the sub-par pitching performance (see former Red Paul Wilson). Some may argue that the injury was the reason for the terrible pitching. In Wickman’s case, however, I prefer to think “lack of talent” as the reason but I do not believe that is an option on the “Disabled List Scantron Form.” Fortunately for us, though, Robert Wickman will be replacing Rosie O’Donnell as the “Token Fatty” on day-time television’s “The View” during his stint on the DL. More to come on the ongoing developments of Bob Wickman…
