Knowing his innate nature to get hurt all the time, why werent the Royals just DH'ing him????

CAUSE THEY ARE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS


See that would minimize his risk of getting injured & then thier best hitter might be able to play more than 7-8 games without going down for 4-6 weeks constantly.

Officially the dopes from KC are calling it both a sprained wrist & elbow at this point.

I am sure they will have an MRI done in the next day or two & find something worse putting him down for 8 weeks at least.

This will be the last P.O.S Royals player to ever be a part of my roster again. :-t

No argument from me...but the Royals seem to want to appease him.

As a long-time Royals fan I don't mind someone calling them idiots because; well.... they often run the team in an idiotic fashion. But from a Rays fan.....Please.

Ahem.

Mike got injured because the bastard Werth ran inside the baselines to collide with him.

I really, really, really hope Greinke goes headhunting today. Maybe smash up Vlad's jaw.

Werth = Dodgers
Vlad = Angels

That would be quite a throw to hit Vlad.

The Kansas City Star reports Mike Sweeney is hoping to avoid time on the disabled list after suffering injuries to his left wrist and left elbow in Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers. He left in the fourth inning after a collision at first base with Dodgers outfielder Jayson Werth. The preliminary diagnosis cited a sprained wrist and sprained elbow, but further examinations are scheduled. "I’m going to get some X-rays in the morning," Sweeney said. "I’m hoping everything will turn out all right, but it’s pretty sore right now."

i guess Pickering will be recalled. i kinda wish they call up billy butler. i want to see this kid. he's going to be a special hitter. i'm sorta joking but a lil' serious. i mean why not? yes he's only 19 but KC sucks and called up the rest of their prospects already anyway..
jp howell was drafted last summer and is being escorted through the royals' system at a rapid pace. already in AAA. bring on billy!
