M L INJURIES
Nick "Rug" Byrne went on the 60 day DL with a shoulder impingement.This is the first of 3 Posse players on the DL this week.Thats gonna leave a mark.
The Howlers called up this youngster for the second time. And Diego "Pacific" Acosta went out for 2 weeks with back spasms. This kid is having a breakout year and to be more Pacific....he is hitting .349.
Shaggy "Carpet" Castillo was rolled up and stored on the 60 day DL.This kid was always a injury risk with 20 something health. Ralph will probably bring him back next year. Then hang him up, beat the dust off , and roll him out again. Probably?
Chip "and Cracked" Wilson will miss 2 weeks with a strained hammy. This is part of a double whammy for the Wind. Perhaps they should protect this catcher with bubble wrap??
Poor Wichita...... Lonny "fade to" Black will miss 3 months with shoulder tendinitis. This R-5 player has promise but its an Ill Wind that Blows in Witch-ita.
Eddie "Dread" Locke is back on the 60 day DL and will miss the rest of the season.This is the 3rd time in 2 years and Wishlist could be heard yelling "This is #%#*^&% Bullship!!!"
Speaking of Bullship!! Here is the Posse's second of this weeks Triad to go on the DL.Miguel "Groan" Baez will miss 2 weeks with a sore man boob.Oh the Huge Mammary!!
The third shirker of the Posse is Jesse "Shames" Buhner. He will miss 2 months with elbow tendinitis. At 5.2 million a year this is Highway Robbery, plain and simple.
Ivan "the mediocre" Cortez will miss 2 months with a torn groin.The Howlers are still on the hook for his 5 million salary. Just another ho-hum day in Wrigleyville and the beat goes on..and on.
The Crabbers lose another player to the 60 day DL. Erubiel "The Crucible" Espinosa will test the patience of Ralph and his Crabbers. Think ..Puppies....Beautiful Flowers....Ohhhmmm.....Shhh.
Art "Smoke" Stewart will miss just over 2 months with tendinitis in the shoulder. Where there's smoke, there's fire. Should Swish be concerned???
Picked up a minor leaguer for 170K.
16.4 million and a S/T invite for this possible Gold Glover. He will hit for a high average but his health projection is a concern. Careful Ardthomp...Careful.
28 million and a S/T invite for this Future Cy-Young contender. This kid is a player you can build around. Kind of makes you yell.... Holy Cow!!!...... or in Vietmanese.. Ho Chi Minh!!
Just a S/T invite for this AAA pitcher who could get a shot at the bigs.
28 million and a major league contract for this future MVP contender. He will be the future Golden Moose!
A S/T invite for this one hitter per inning pitcher.
12.7 million for this nice rotation pitching prospect. If he stays healthy he could be the steal of the IFA's.
4.6 million for this great long relief prospect. Great addition to the rebuild.
Minor league pitching help.
1.4 million for this M L mop-up pitcher. If he gets a DITR bump on his splits he may be a good rotation guy.
1.2 million and a S/T invite for this nice set-up prospect. If he had a better RH split he would be great.
26.8 million for this great Catching prospect. He will be a future Silver Slugger at the Catching position. But he is below average as a Catcher. But still a nice trade off.
A little power in rookie league
