When do you guys think he'll be ready to go? Assume we live in a perfect world and he has no setbacks in his recovery.

Let's get some speculation going......IF he is back late may...what happens with the Closer situation in Dodgerland?

i think the dodgers take a very cautious approach and bring him along slowly. Baez is proven and is throwing great. No need to rush a bad situation if you dont have to. Maybe full time closer around or after the break (hopefullly that is worst case scenario.)

The Dodgers must have known Gagne wouldn't be ready for the start of the 2006 season thats why they picked up Baez to begin with. Absolutely right, theres no sense rushing him back when L.A. has a capable closer like Baez in the mix. :-°

so, the throwing program is supposed to begin today.

get better, gagne!

with baez, i agree that there's no sense in rushing gagne, but it's encouraging that there haven't been any setbacks. the ASB still looks like a reasonable timetable.

yeah, yes...

i have the feeling baez is going to keep the job longer than many expect, possibly the remainder of the season, anyone with me?

hope so...the Gagne owner in my main league keeps saying he doesn't need Baez b/c Gagne's coming back. I'm not so sure.
