Ridiculous? It's just a few games so far. Probably should be expected that he'll miss a handful games every year anyway. He missed games last year too as does many other big 1B type sluggers.
Ridiculous is if you traded him for Beckett and then find that Beckett still hasn't kicked the blister problem among other things.
You'd think that spending time w/ Al Leiter this year would help, if nothing else, but oh well... And oh, on top of that, silly me for thinking Nick Johnson might finally leave his injury-prone history behind him so that he could replace Hafner in my lineup.
