Bye bye Maggs?

Postby Dodger Blue » Mon Apr 18, 2005 12:23 am

Apr 17 Updating a continuing story, Danny Knobler, of Mlive.com, reports Detroit Tigers OF Magglio Ordonez (hernia) is due to visit with specialists in Montreal Monday, April 18, and in Philadelphia Tuesday, April 19, to further discuss his hernia. Ordonez is expected to undergo surgery in the near future that would sideline him for a minimum of four-to-six weeks. However, Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the timeline could turn out to be months rather than weeks. The worst-case scenario would be that Ordonez would miss the entire season.

I would rather hear that and cut bait now. Free up a roster spot. Still early for the super Waiver Wire wonders

The injury clause only covered his knee...so the Tigers are still responsible. I bet they're LOVING Boras right now.

I believe much of the contract was voidable if he was unable to play 120 games this year.

Only for a knee injury.

"It also doesn't threaten Ordonez's unusual five-year, $75 million contract, which can be voided if Ordonez misses a significant amount of time with the same knee injury that required two surgeries last year.

The Tigers can't void the contract because of a hernia, but they don't want to, either."

Made a trade offer for him right before the season started, after seeing him in spring training. I'm glad his owner thinks I'm an ass and didn't accept the trade due to spite.

Own him in another league. I may be screwed there b/c there is no depth on the WW in this 16 team league.
