Number of times an athlete says, “It’s nothing, don’t worry about it.”: 5,467,123.
Number of times it’s actually nothing, so don’t worry about it: 4.
Yu Darvish came out of yesterday’s game with triceps soreness. He immediately said it was nothing, don’t worry about it. Just like Derek Holland’s sore throwing shoulder is nothing, don’t worry about it.
It’s always nothing.
And nothing leads to a few skipped starts.
And then nothing leads to precautionary measures.
And then nothing leads to the DL.
It’s never nothing.
