Wandy went and screwed up

So remember the plan was to have Wandy start on short rest this week so he could line up to be SP2? Yeah, he nutted that.

Thankfully, it's not the rib muscle, but instead a tender finger as Wandy is turning into our version of Glass Joe. On Jose Reyes' chopper, Wandy tried to barehand it. It doesn't hurt when he throws his fastball, but it does as he throws his curve. Which basically means that JJO tipped Wandy's pitches for him in the newspaper.

“I tried to throw my curveball in the bullpen without putting the pressure on the finger, but I didn’t even reach it to the plate,” he said. “It bounced way before it got there.”
