It's one of the unfortunate realities of sports; injuries occur to those who play.
Those injuries can have a major impact on the individual season of the player who gets hurt, not to mention a lasting effect on the season of the team as a whole.
So far this season, we have seen season-ending injuries to key MLB players such as Adam Wainwright, Buster Posey, Jorge De La Rosa and Daisuke Matsuzaka, to name a few.
The argument as to just how much these injuries actually impact their teams will vary based on the player—as well as based on the person making the argument.
If you are not a San Francisco Giants fan, you may not think Posey's injury is as drastic as the team and their front office made it out to be.
If you are a Red Sox fan, you may argue Matsuzaka did the team a favor by missing the rest of the season.
Injuries hurt a team in the box scores without a doubt, but they also can affect a team's chemistry and morale. Often times, this is the more damaging result.
