Just a quickie today, folks! Maybe it’s been some sort of stomach flu. Maybe it was that order of Clams Casino the chef recommended as he listed the specials. Or maybe it was the fact that I opted to watch the Royals game. Wow, they look awful right now. Whatever the case may be, I’ve been sick as a dog for the last 12 hours and barely have anything left in me to bring you the highlights (and lowlights) from Wednesday’s games.
Are you there, Dr. Andrews? It’s me, Jacoby. Red Sox Nation and fantasy owners around the world took it in the you-know-where Friday when Jacoby Ellsbury slid into second base and Tampa Bay shortstop Reid Brignac fell onto the outfielder’s shoulder. You could tell by the look on Ellsbury’s face – or maybe it was the obscenities that he was screaming as he lay there in pain – that this was going to be bad. He was helped off the field and immediately rushed for an MRI. A shoulder subluxation is what they’re calling it right now and owners are looking at missing their first-round draft choice for a minimum of six weeks. Further tests are going to be run – it won’t be less time, but it certainly could be more.
I'm having one of those days. You know, where you wake up feeling a little foggy. I didn't stay out last night boozing, that will be tonight, so I can't really explain my malaise. Therefore, I'm only going to take partial responsibility for what you're about to read. If you find it useful then it was all me. If you find it laughable, well, then my body was possessed by the spirit of some whacky baseball analyst. I'll discuss the value of Jose Bautista, Matt Garza and the recently signed Ryan Madson in my weekly piece.
