Strange as it may seem, not all injuries are created equal in sports. In baseball, any kind of hand/wrist injury can really impact a hitter’s ability to turn on a fastball, and those players trying to come back from such injuries often struggle at the plate. Likewise, foot injuries are hard to overcome for hitters and pitchers, especially if it’s to a plant foot that gives the player power to swing or throw the ball.
If you have veterans who are not performing after one month of the season, it’s time to let them go. Someone else has to chance them on the roster; you need players performing right now. So shelve your emotions and make the tough choices that other owners can’t—and won’t—make. It will help you win in September.
