The Walking Dead

The pain, boss – the pain! It seems as though these days the MLB injured list reads like a small town’s Yellow Pages from back in 1979.

Players are dropping like flies attempting to make the most basic of plays in the field or on the base paths.

We all know it’s happening because we see it with our own eyes.

But WHY is it happening?

BallNine’s Chris Vitali, Kevin Kernan, Rocco Constantino and Dan Tiant checks in with Performance Coach Sal Marinello to try and make some sense out of what it is these guys are doing wrong leading them to be more MASH Units than baseball teams.

Is it the training?

Is the the players themselves?

Is it the shoes?

Whatever it is, something is going on and B9 is here to try and come up with a few answers.

So pull up your favorite wheelchair and check it out, and we promise you won’t need to visit Dr. Andrews when all is said and done.

Chris is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of BallNine and was the other half of the battery for the 1986 Belleville Recreation Farm League Champion Indians. He sometimes answers to "Willie Randolph Hearst". After a few years as a touring musician he decided to become a Chef, a position he held until the industry almost killed him. Now he likes to spend his time talking about the absurdities of baseball and training his army of attack squirrels in the yard of his California home.
