More Injuries

Wonderful. Brad Lincoln is done for the season. Ian Snell has a pulled muscle in his shoulder. The Pirates say he won't miss a start. The way things have gone, I don't believe them.

Is the Pirates' medical staff this clueless, or do they honestly believe there's some benefit to not telling the truth about injuries? If it's the latter, can someone enlighten me as to what that benefit might be? To my eyes, it just makes them look incompetent.
