I was reading up, trying to figure out the issue with the Sox pitching staff, and I noticed a potential problem. There are issues between Ryan Weber and Brandon Workman. Weber says that capitalism is "the systematic robbery of what is necessary for the life of the Workman while he is at work, robbery of space, light, air, and the protection of his person..." Weber was great in his debut -- 4 innings pitched, no runs allowed. Meanwhile, Workman has been pretty good as well -- an 0.7 WAR (albeit in only 15 innings). But it seems that Weber complaining about Workman's conditions is a signal that the pitchers aren't receiving the kind of light and air a championship staff needs. It should not have taken journeyman reliever to point this out. So, have we checked on Workman lately? I looked for images of his locker and found this: [Photo: projo] Workman is on the right, and he appears to be wearing eye protection, but inadequate head protection, much less gloves or an appropriate work shirt. Worse, Ryan Brasier (left) looks to be in pain. Perhaps a courageous muckraker of the Shankian variety can dig a little deeper, but from where I sit there's an issue here.
