What is wrong with Giants trainers?


We all know the drill:  Giants vet gets hurt but not hurt enough to put on the DL, but ends up missing 7-14 days/games anyway, then repeats again later in the season, missing more games, or just performs poorly.

The names we know:  Durham, Alou, Winn, Roberts, Rowand, Uribe, Renteria, Aurilia.   Why does it seem like Giants players always sit around on the bench with these semi-injuries?  Or come back from these performing poorly?  Why don't the Giants just DL them for 15 days and make do?  Why don't the Giants just let them rest and get well instead of running them out there, taking up a spot on the bench, useless? 

Especially hamstrings.  Except for Barry Bonds, I would have prefered the Giants just DLed anybody who tweaked their hamstring in the last 5 years, because it seems like they spend at least a week doing the "will he/won't he" dance before finally playing again.  Just get it well.

And isn't there a way to detect bone spurs or something?  Both Roberts and Renteria have been busts offensively because they had bone spurs that needed operations.  Roberts was fine once he had the operation, but if this could have been detected beforehand, then we don't sign him or Renteria. 

 

Off Topic, but if anyone can prove that Gary Darling is a Dodger's fan in umpire's clothing, I would like to see it sent to the Commissioner's office.  If not for his two bone-head calls, it is 3-1 Giants (and Lincecum) win, instead of 2-2 extra innings....
