"I spoke with Derrick Goold, a sportswriter who follows the St. Louis Cardinals. I spoke to him this morning. I have known Derrick ever since we went to high school in New Jersey. Derrick told me that the Pujols injury is much more severe than originally reported. He is currently having an MRI done on his right backside as of this email. He has been preliminarily diagnosed with a torn right oblique muscle. Some reports out their have called it a strained oblique. Derrick is being told it is torn, but the MRI will verify. Pujols has very limited mobility. He can't lay down, or even open a door. The pain has gotten significantly worse over the past 24 hours. Best case scenario would be an early July return, but Derrick has been told by team physicians that if he did sustain a tear, his season is in jeopardy. Even if he suffered a strain, and not a tear (which is what is believed to have happened), Pujols may be out until early August. Official news should hit the websites between 5 and 6 pm."



ps a strain is a slight tear, and its been reported already that it is indeed a significant "tear" but this isnt putting his season in jeopardy and i question the validity of this post.


As long as you aren't questioning ME. !+)

I have no idea whether it's true, I simply posted it because it was sent to me. If it isn't in fact true, then hallelujah! As an owner of his in two leagues, I'll throw a celebratory party and invite you all. :-)

THis report is proven false. The reporter didnt go to high school with anyone in NJ. He went in Colorado.

With no official word from the front office, I would say 4 weeks, he was in alot of pain, and he hurt one of the most importat muscles in baseball the oblique. It effects everything from throwing, to hitting ..hell it makes it hard to breath.

Hes out 4 weeks minnimum... :-t
Watch me strike this palooka out with my super slow ball...

The hinky thing is, no motion he made in that play should cause an injury, let alone a major one. He turned to his left and started to run, that's maybe the most routine movement in baseball. I'm 99% sure he was playing through a partial strain and he aggravted it. Obliques get strain or torn when you over swing, overstretch them making a difficult play, or just plain not stretching enough before a game, which seems highly unlikely.

My wife is a medical transcriptionist that does quite a bit of orthopedic reports and she said the same thing to me earlier tonight.

Last year I was plagued with injuries and this year, the only big injury was Rowand and Renteria, combined for maybe 15 games? Not much.

But this one... :-o

I miss you Pujols, may you recover as fast as you hit those dingers.

This is my current roster. Earlier in the year I traded Paul Konerko for Mike Mussian straight up only because I had picked up Ryan Howard on the waiver wire after a moron in the league dropped him, haha. I thought I would be just fine w/o Konerko b/c of having Fat Albert and Howard. I now have Pujols on the DL, to go along with my current and past players this season, going on the DL. The names include Kerry Wood, Eric Gagne, Armando Benitez, Jeff Kent, Noah Lowry, and Delmon Young (not on the DL but ruined his shot at the Big Show this season). I am somehow still in 3rd place, only 4.5 points out of first (W-L-T head to head). I do despise this fantasy season though.

Head to Head League (8 teams)

R, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, BB, K, E, OBP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, OUT, HR, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP
