We've all heard of arthritis in the knees and even the hips. But many people may not know the thumb is prone to the joint disease as well. Neil Zimmerman, hand surgeon at the Curtis National Hand Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, said the most common type of thumb arthritis happens gradually over time. What is thumb arthritis and what causes it? The most common type of arthritis that involves the thumb is osteoarthritis, also known as wear-and-tear arthritis, which is most commonly located in the joint at the base of the thumb where it joins the palm.

CHICAGO -- Since returning from a left thumb injury that kept him out for three games, Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy entered Tuesday with six hits in 16 at-bats, including three multihit games out of four. Through Monday, Hardy was batting .396 in August while still playing through pain in his thumb. “I don't know,” said Hardy, who turned 32 on Tuesday. “Maybe I'm not trying to do too much because I can't. That's my only explanation, but [the thumb injury] is definitely not in the past.

Markakis saw hand specialist Dr. Brian Schofield before the Orioles' series opener against the Rays here in Tampa Bay hoping he would get two pins removed from the thumb, but the doctor decided to postpone removing the pins another week. “It was just crushed too bad in there and I had a lot of pieces here and there,” Markakis said.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Orioles reserve catcher Taylor Teagarden is out likely three to four weeks after taking a foul ball to the tip of his left thumb in the sixth inning of the Orioles' 7-3 win over the Oakland A's on Saturday . Teagarden said when he took off his mitt, the thumb was bent backward and was “kind of scary looking,” and he immediately assumed it was broken. Instead, X-rays confirmed it was only a dislocation, but it will still require a 15-day disabled-list stint that could last a month.

Playing for the first time since its most dispiriting loss of the season a week earlier, the ninth-ranked Maryland women's basketball team punished Boston College in the early stages Thursday night and coasted the rest of the way for an 86-44 victory before an announced 3,607 at Comcast Center that included the return of Atlantic Coast Conference leading scorer Alyssa Thomas. A sore thumb kept Thomas on the bench last week against Virginia Tech, which dealt Maryland its second straight loss despite having won just twice in conference at the time.

Buck Showalter spoke optimistically following Saturday night's 5-4 win over the Yankees about right fielder Nick Markakis potentially returning from a broken left thumb if the Orioles went deep into the postseason. Before Sunday's series finale against New York, Showalter admitted it was wishful thinking. A series of tests over the next two days will give the Orioles a definitive answer whether Markakis will need surgery that would most certainly end his 2012 season regardless of the Orioles' future.

An MRI performed on Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy's sprained left thumb was clean, and he said he hopes that he can return to the team's starting lineup during this weekend's series in Cleveland. “Came in yesterday and [saw] a big improvement,” Hardy said. “Came in today, had a bigger improvement and real positive about the way it feels.” Hardy has been out since Sunday after injuring the thumb in Saturday's game when he slid into home plate and his hand hit off St. Louis Cardinals catcher A.J. Pierzynski.

In recent weeks, the Orioles have built the largest division lead in baseball as they chase their first American League East title in 17 years, but the club now faces the possibility of being without All-Star third baseman Manny Machado for an extended amount of time. An MRI performed Tuesday revealed no apparent structural damage, and the club said Machado was diagnosed with a right knee ligament sprain. In some ways, that was good news - especially given how Machado's season ended last year with a left knee injury that required offseason surgery - but it appears that this injury could force Machado to the 15-day disabled list.

Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy missed his second straight start Monday because of a sprained left thumb that he originally injured while sliding into home plate Saturday afternoon. Hardy said he woke up Monday morning and the thumb felt about the same as Sunday, so Orioles manager Buck Showalter kept him out of the starting lineup again. “I think I'd be able [to play] in an emergency,” Hardy said. “I feel like I could alter the way I hold the bat and hit. I don't know how well I would do it. I think fielding, opening and closing my glove, is a little tough.

I guess it is now publicly acceptable for our elected officials to take our taxpayer dollars without meeting their obligations to constituents ( "No sympathy for Jon Cardin's issues," May 13). I deeply resent paying some of the highest taxes in our nation to pay officials who are completely irresponsible. This is not the first time Del. Jon Cardin has proven he does not take his elected position seriously. His sense of entitlement is infuriating. Yes, Delegate Cardin certainly represents the new progressive leadership we continue to elect in Maryland.
