Crosby Update

Postby bAsKeTcAsE86 » Sat Apr 22, 2006 6:53 pm

I found this blurb on Cbs.sportsline.com:

Shortstop Bobby Crosby is not expected to miss significant time for the Oakland Athletics with a strained right triceps muscle, an injury he sustained in batting practice Friday before the A's played the Los Angeles Angels. Crosby was examined Saturday by team orthopedist Jerrald Goldman, who was pleased with Crosby's improvement and didn't think the 2004 AL Rookie of the Year would need to spend time on the disabled list. "It's certainly not a DL type of thing," Goldman said. "It's days rather than weeks." Crosby's injury is deep beneath the armpit where the triceps muscle begins - an uncommon spot that makes it difficult to treat.
(Updated 04/22/2006).

It also said that he is definitely out for the rest of the A's series against the Angels. Other than that, it looks like he falls into the dreaded "day to day" category...

I also think that it said somewhere in that report that Bobby Crosby is a pussy.

Or maybe I was just thinking that.

he pinch ran, which i dont mind since id rather keep him in the lineup as a pinch runner and have him score 1 run instead of him going 0-5 or 0-4 every other night and killing my avg.

I've never bought into the Crosby hype. I just don't see the talent everybody's talking about. I'm also wondering if he's got a case of Garciaparra-Drew syndrome, where he just constantly has some injury pop up. Could be just bad luck early on, but if continues to get these little nicks, something is just off physically.
