I know I am. :-P :~( :~(

I have him in both my leagues. It's my fault guys. This is the first time I've owned him, so naturally he gets hurt. Just like Thome last year, and Duece McAllister in football. I AM CURSED!!!!!! :~(

I hope they have patience and sit him the rest of the year. It would be a real shame to see this injury become career threatening because he tries to rush back too quickly.

I don't have Lee on any of my teams, but this is really, really sad. :-/

The guy's never been on the DL since 1997, he's played a minimum of 155 games every year, then this happens. I guess it should be expected sooner or later. It sucks for me because I drafted Sean Casey (:-o) as his backup, so I picked up Nevin tonight (another :-o ). I guess we'll see how it goes. It's only April.

What I'm wondering, too, is how this affects the value of Cubs' pitchers. I have Zambrano and Maddux in one league; time to sell?

Well.. it does take a giant bat out of the lineup... no run support = pirates.

This absolutely sucks! I just traded away Ryan Howard for Roy Halladay 2 days ago.

Most of his power comes from his upper and lower body coupled with his left side. His power will stay constant IMO, just he may no longer be the gold glover he's always been.


This shouldn't affect his glove, either. He gloves lefty, so I don't see a problem there.


I'm talking about fielding and throwing in general. You don't even need a wrist to catch lol e.g Abbott.

Nomar Garciaparra had a wrist injury back in 2001, and that kept him out of all but 21 games.
