Hamstring injuries have hit the dodgers repeatedly this year – Hamley Ramirez (again last night), Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford are at the forefront. The Dodgers allegedly have a world-class training staff and take this stuff seriously, so I am not going to assume that they are just morons. I am sure that they know about the importance of potassium and proper hydration, so it must be something else. Athletes today are some of the finest physical specimens ever on this planet but it seems that they have more difficulty with injuries than ever before. Could it be that our salt today is just sodium chloride and does not contain the other 80+ trace elements? Why are diseases like autism and Alzheimers increasing by leaps and bounds?
Some people think it is related to the type of vaccinations utilized today or chemicals such as Aspertame used to sweeten foods (if you are inclined, read this article by Dr. Mercola about artificial sweeteners). Refined foods and chemicals in the water may play a role as well. I would recommend that the Dodgers medical staff look into the diets of their players and see what role that may have in the injury bug that has bitten them again. If you drink bottled water HERE is something to consider. By the way, the US State Department just place a large order with US Water last night.
- Hanley Ramirez is the player the Dodgers can least afford to lost.
- It was a nice win last night!
- Does anyone want James McDonald back – I’ve always said he’s a reliever, not a starter. He’s available…
- Bumgarner vs. Kershaw tonight – Classic!
