He was hit by a pitch and Ankiel ran for him. Was he injured badly?

Hit by a pitch on the shoulder. No idea if it's serious.

The ghosts of Josh Bard and Chris Young haunted him so bad he had a nervous breakdown on the field.....oh I forgot Pujols just attempted to murder them, he didn't actually succeed.....this time!

what I got from it was he had some soreness and they wanted to get him off the sloppy field after all the rain.

Don't think this is serious.

Thank God. I was preparing myself to read something about his elbow. This doesnt seem to be that big of a deal

Not in the line up tonight either. Won't be on tomorrow either. Friday is now the best case for a return at this point, although that seems unlikely. Here we go...

Let's not get carried away. If it really is his calf, it has nothing to do with all that hype surrounding the elbow injury so I don't see a need to get too concerned. Seeing as he is the key to that whole offense I'm sure they are just being careful. As long as it doesn't involve the elbow I'm fine with it, because there is no way the team elects to have surgery now with the Cards still in the Race in June. It's almost too late to have the surgery and still have him ready for opening day 2009.
