Which cost me. I had Agent Zero, Butler, and Redd on my team. Lost the championship by 5 rebounds to a completly healthy team. Sore subject.

From the Sun-Sentinel:
The Mets put on a power display Thursday night while the Marlins' biggest power source, Miguel Cabrera, left the game after two innings with a right oblique injury.

"We'll see," General Manager Larry Beinfest said. "We want to be cautious, real cautious. We'll see."

"I'm not in pain," said Cabrera, who felt the injury in his first at-bat in Wednesday's game. "It only hurts when I swing and miss. It felt good during batting practice, but it tightened up before the game."


I ask again, is this similar to what Pujols had LY?

More specific news from the Sun-Sentinel:
Cabrera update

Miguel Cabrera was smiling and in good spirits as he discussed the injury that forced him out of tonight's game after two innings. It's in his right side, the oblique muscle, and he says he originally hurt it on a swing and miss during his first at-bat against Mets starter John Maine on Wednesday.

Cabrera wanted to stay in the game Thursday but manager Fredi Gonzalez insisted on removing him after asking why he had bunted on his own his first time up.

"It's nothing serious," Cabrera said. "I want to play. It's just when I swing and miss, I feel something."

Gonzalez said it's 50/50 whether Cabrera will play Friday night against the Nationals, but it's a fair guess the Marlins won't use their best hitter at all in this three-game series against the league's worst team. Maybe if Cabrera's condition improves, you'll see him back out there Monday when the Braves hit town.

If Cabrera indeed tried to hide his injury from the team, he's the second regular to do that this year. Rookie Alejandro De Aza did the same thing after hurting his ankle in Washington, but Cabrera should know better.

Miguel Cabrera

Postby sox 06 » Fri Apr 20, 2007 1:53 pm

He is a game time decision for tonight's game:

News: Marlins 3B Miguel Cabrera (torso) is a game-time decision for Friday's series opener vs. Washington, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentine. "Well re-evaluate it [Friday]. I'd say that he's 50-50 for [Friday night]," said manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Analysis: Cabrera left Thursday's game after two innings with a right oblique injury. "I'm not in pain," said Cabrera, who felt the injury in his first at-bat in Wednesday's game. "It only hurts when I swing and miss. It felt good during batting practice, but it tightened up before the game." The Marlins could choose to play it safe with their top slugger, making him a risky option in daily leagues. See how he fares through the weekend before making a decision on him for the upcoming scoring period.

That's encouraging, but I hope they error on the side of caution.
