That's great - there goes my starter. :~(

Estrada better play his a$$ off the rest of the season!! :-/

Also I have yet to see anything that says Ramon Hernandez is shutting it down ...


This gives me some hope at least...hopefully Hernandez is still productive when he's in. :-?

I'd guess he heard it on the radio. Because that's what his second post says.

Ditto.

I also retract my statement about the subject being inaccurate :-o

Thanks for the good info. Given that Nevin is available in my league, I'll keep an eye on him now, and hope we continue to get updates ;-D

So does this also mean that Ramon Hernandez is having season-ending surgery on his wrist?

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Nevin could provide some value if someone is weak at the C position.

Bruce Bochy said Ramon will have an MRI tomorrow .. and Bochy said he expects Ramon to actually go under the knife. But we will know more tomorrow.

As far as Phil catching, Bruce said it was actually Phils idea.

A quick reminder on Phils catching prowness ...
The knock on him, was he couldn't throw runners out which is why he moved to 3B a decade ago.
I can't see him bing any better after two shoulder surgeries ....

I'd expect Tony Larussa to give the green light alot this evening...
