  12. MLB Injury Meter Update: How Screwed Is Your Favorite Team?

    Michael Baumann

    Back at the beginning of the season, when we were still young and innocent and capable of feeling shocked that playing baseball today seemed more dangerous than hanging around the docks in Texas City in 1947, I examined which of the mounting injuries...
