Lyon to DL, Abad back up

Brandon Lyon was put back on the DL yesterday, and Fernando Abad was called up.

"There's definitely some issues in my shoulder right now, and [surgery] is definitely an option. I want to get a grasp on it, and talk to other people and get their opinions on it, and just move forward after I hear what they have to say."

Ed Wade:
"I talked to [manager] Brad Mills and [head athletic trainer] Nate Lucero last night after the game about whether we thought he was [OK] physically, and we had a chance to sit down with Brandon this afternoon and he admitted he still has discomfort in the biceps tendon. It doesn't make any sense for him to go out and try to be a hero. And with the way he's feeling right now, we're going to put him on the disabled list."

No, it doesn't make any sense to try to go out and be a hero, because he's not being a hero. He's being a Goat, and it's killing what little chance this team has of competing. The word that you might be thinking of is, "Gamer." We love it when a player plays hurt, and plays well. It's just that Lyon has been doing more of the former, and not the latter.
