Orioles: Sherrill sore

Just got a heads-up from Orioles beat writer Jeff Zrebiec that closer George Sherrill has had his activities restricted because of a mild hamstring strain. He's still able to throw, but is being held out of some conditioning drills to let his leg calm down.

In other non-serious injury news:

Pitcher Mark Hendrickson has been dealing with some hip soreness.

Reliever Kam Mickolio had to leave the field with a groin strain. He's obviously day to day, as are the rest of us.

Non-roster right-hander Scott Chiasson was held out of today's workout because he was ill.

Pete, Be careful you do not hurt your elbow ironing all those fancy aloha shirts!

Groin strains can nag forever if not properly rested. If it gets exacerbated into a fullblown groin pull, then it will wash out his season pretty much. Better to treat it proper today than make it into something.

Pete,
I've always had another question but was afraid to ask. How do you feel if your readers read Roch's blog at MASN also? And vice-versa? Are we lesser Schmuckians? Or lesser Roch-ites? It's alright, right?

I believe you two are friends..but you might wanna ask him about the Schmuckian vs. Rochite protocol to prevent a virtual war.

Pete's reply: I have no problem with everyone reading both blogs. There will be some overlap, because we're in the same place right now, but you get a different viewpoint from each.

They're dropping like flies !! Good thing there's 37 of 'em, right ?

Peter:
Have the Orioles lifted their restrictions on ONLY letting their players and personnel do interviews with the Flagship station? I asked this question based on your interviews on WBAL spring training show? I try to listen every night and the only problem is, one hour is too short. But I understand you need a break from a long day. Keep up the good work.

...............................................................................................
Pete's reply: No, there is no restriction on interviewing players and team personnel. The restriction is on live studio interviews and going live from spring training if you're not a rightsholder.

Pete-In your Huff Stops By entry,you mentioned checking your Oriols Notebook on the web site.Can you give me the exact site or a link?Thanks

..............................................................................................
Pete's reply: It will actually be Jeff and my Orioles notebook and it's not up yet, so I don't have a link. Sorry.

What is this? Camp Harbaugh!

Peter,
The Orioles pitching situation is like cable TV at 4am. There is nothing worth watching no matter how stations you have.

Pete , your humorous quips don't go un-noticed , nice job so far !

Hey Pete, just watch the one armed hot dog curls. They've been known to end more than one blogging career...what's that? oh nevermind it's only been one, so far.

Pete--Sherrill strained his hamstring last spring, too.

I'm putting him down for a hamstring strain in February 2010.

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
