Heal Up

Alex Rodriguez had an MRI yesterday. According to Mark Feinsand in the News:

A-Rod will likely miss at least the next few days after an MRI revealed a low-grade strain of his left calf, an injury that sidelined Jorge Posada for four games in early May.

“This is not as significant as Posada’s, as it was conveyed to me,” GM Brian Cashman said. “That probably means less time, though that doesn’t mean it will be less time. Could it be two days, three days, longer? We’ll have to see. It’s not a serious situation, though it’s obviously serious in that we won’t have him for a period of time.”

…A-Rod has never dealt with a calf injury before, so he had no way to judge how much progress he had made since leaving Monday’s game, but he seemed encouraged by the information given to him by team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad.

“I’m not concerned. I’m going to be fine,” Rodriguez said. “Right now, we have good news. We don’t want to prolong it or make it a more serious situation.”

Only got the Tiggers' feed last night. They showed a few minutes of Daniel Schlereth's dad in the stands. The woman he was with looked a little too young to be Dan's mom, but damn, she looked fine.

1) That's funny...when I saw her my first thought was"bumpits".

De gustibus and all that!

So if I read Cashman right, he's basically saying "I've got nuthin' and you're an idiot for asking"?

[3] Brian always plays his cards very close to his chest. As a good GM, he doesn't make deals in public. He could say he's got nothing, and then 2 minutes later trade Posada & Jeter & Mo. (Though if he did that, he wouldn't live to see the next sunrise.)

[4] That's exactly what happened to Willie with the Mets, if I recall...

[2] Ha! That's funny. The big hair also caught my attention (as if it couldn't). It was like a flashback to the 60's. I also thought it was curious that they kept showing her (they could cut the frame to show just him) but the announcers never mentioned who she might be. Clearly they didn't know. I thought that was a bit awkward. They were probably whispering and signaling to each other "who's the girl" but nobody knew - or nobody dared say.

Weird moment in the game.

And Kay saying the dad played in three super bowls but this is the most nervous he's ever been? Yeah - not sure about that.

[3] Cashman is getting stranger and stranger.
