Geoff Blum flew back to Houston yesterday to have his shoulder spasms checked out.
Coop thinks the problem in his shoulder, nay, even his knee lies in his neck:
“I think it's a nerve in his neck that's causing the problem. He's been battling a sore left knee and everything. He's got to get checked out.”
Hunter Pence feels personally responsible for his performance in August, a month in which he's hitting .214.
“Where we're at right now, I feel like I'm letting the fans down in Houston. We got to figure out a way to turn it around. That's what I'm working to do.”
Well, the fans in St. Louis love it.
And an update on Hampton's PRP:
“I hadn't thrown in two weeks. I didn't expect to feel great. I'll probably try it again in Arizona and see how I feel then. I threw probably about 50 throws. I'm trying to get it going. Some felt good, some didn't. ... I don't care who you are, if you haven't thrown in two weeks you're not going to feel great. We'll see. We'll give a couple more days and see how it feels.”
