I don't like that part about the ligament. I could go out and get Melvin Mora possibly, but I'm in 1st at the moment and don't want to have to pay the price for a Mora, esp when I have Figgins filling in nicely for Jones. Either way, partially torn ligament doesn't seem like something fixed with a boot, he'll come back and hurt himself again round the bases or something, I think this could become a Griffey type situation with a nagging injury.
