Am I in the wrong in being annoyed with Darren Helm in this situation? (I think I am)
Does he not know his limits? Is he himself the reason for the setback because he pushed himself too hard? Sit until it doesn't hurt....
Stop trying to be Superman.
1. My gut says this isn't a genuine setback, Holland just had him on an unrealistic time table, which has now been adjusted to reflect reality. (Am I the only one who felt Helm's "comeback" seemed to come almost out of nowhere? Like, after having been "We just don't know" for 90 years, suddenly it was "Roundabout 10 days.")
2. Back pain is hell.
3. Even if he has done something to aggravate his condition, I can't say I really blame him. I mean, look at how frustrated we get with this team. Now, imagine being Helm, the team's spark plug, arguably the heart and soul of this team, a guy who can make (and, alas, arguably is making) a huge difference - our *big trade deadline acquisition* (as stupid as that is).
