TIMLIN GOES ON DL---FRANCONA SEZ 'DIRECTLY RELATED TO SPRING TRAINING' (Timlin was at WBC, HAD ARM PAIN)--LASORDA, MLB---WHERE ARE YOUR ATTACKS NOW?
"Francona said he thought the injury was "directly related to spring training. It was a little bit dysfunctional for him" because Timlin left to play in the World Baseball Classic for the United States." This today from AP. THE LATEST MANAGER TO CITE PITCHER INJURY BUT NO ATTACK ON FRANCONA ON PRIME TIME TV FROM ANYONE INVOLVED. I THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO SAY ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE WBC. I THOUGHT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE 'COLLECTIVE SACRIFICE' ACCORDING TO DISNEY/ESPN'S JAYSON STARK. WHY ARE THEY SILENT NOW???
