A-Rod Injury Update
Monday, April 21, 2008
If you were watching the game last night, you saw some good news and bad news. The good news, of course, was Dandy Andy's awesome and much-needed 7-inning start, which allowed the super-taxed bullpen to take a breather. The bad news, in case you missed it, is that A-Rod left the game in the sixth inning after he strained his quad trying to run out a ground ball. Like we saw with Jeter a couple weeks ago, a strained quad does not necessarily mean that the victim is destined for a spell at the DL Resort, but that doesn't mean it's not something to be concerned about. As A-Rod himself put it, "I have some concern about it. Anytime you have any type of feeling like that you have some concern."

While I certainly don't like the sound of that one bit - I'd feel much better if the answer was "Get outta here! This little strain is no big deal. Don't fret my pets!" - at least the timing of the injury is actually not too bad. He will probably miss a couple games just to be safe, but it is early in the season and he was actually going to be missing a few games starting any day now to be with his crazy wife (she of the classy "fuck you" tank top) when she goes into labor to deliver their second Mini-Rod (get your mind out of the gutter). Now let's just hope it really is just a minor injury, because Melky can only hit so many home runs.

    I feel like something small like this happens to him every year. In fact I just saw that he will probably start today. I think he just needs to grow a pair and suck up the more minor injuries just like everyone else does. If A-Rod get's so much as a hangnail he'll ask to come out for a game.

    Hope you are recovering well!

    Actually, this works out well. His daughter was just born so now he can take his paternity leave along with the injury rest. I know he'd rather not be hurt, but if you're going to get hurt..this is probably the best time to do it.
