Max Scherzer Likely to Miss Playoffs Too: Texas Rangers pitcher Max Scherzer has a teres major strain (never heard of that) and will miss the rest of the regular season and "likely" the playoffs as well, general manager Chris Young said. The Rangers are a game behind Houston in the AL West race and in second in the wild card race, with Seattle and Toronto close enough to potentially keep them out of the postseason.

a teres major strain (never heard of that)

That's when anatomy merges with astronomy.

My recent bone injury is named after the constellation ulna minor.

Teres major is a fantastic and generally fairly reasonably priced cut of beef if you have access to a proper butcher. This is the first time I can recall hearing it in relation to an injury, though.

May have to run by my local this weekend so I can eat my feelings. I've really enjoyed watching Max's starts.

*Everyone* knows that Teres Major Strain is a Rush album from 1977.

Teres Major is the larger of 2 adjacent islands in the scapulohumeral atoll. It can be damaged by too much activity in Glen O'Humeral's joint. I looked it up, and that's what I understood.

That teres major beef selection looks similar to an eye of the round, which was a popular budget cut o' the cow back in the day. At least with my mother.

You get past Friday in a 1960's Catholic household, you are gonna see some reasonably priced beef.

(my neighborhood borders both The Hill [STL's Little Italy, where Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola grew up] and Dogtown [STL's traditional Irish neighborhood]. On certain weekends it kinda feels like I live in the parking lot of a 60s American Catholic version of Silver Dollar City.)

Ufez, you're in STL? Did I know that? I grew up in Edwardsville across the river.

And I don't think you have to worry about Jays any longer. We aren't.

I am! Even went out and enjoyed the Forest Park Balloon Glow on Friday night (it's my favorite annual local event). Doing some research work for the Billikens.

And the full meaning behind "Hoosier to Hoser" just sank in...

(Granted, that was the first I've watched the Jays this year, but I hope Vladdy Jr's loss of ability to catch up with the high heat is a short-lived speed bump in his career. It was tough to watch him keep whiffing on them during that series.)
