Laird goes down (Salty full time now for a while)

Postby DSheppard » Fri Jun 20, 2008 8:43 pm

Something with the hamstring, but it looked bad. Very obvious pain. No way its not a DL stint. Could be bad.

Well, salty has struggled lately but full time ABs could be what he needs to get going.

despite laird looking very hurt at the time, the rangers are only saying mild hamstring strain right now. surely still DL though.

I thought it would be some random veteran to fill in the time, but Max Ramirez is in fact being called up.

That threatens Salty's playing time actually... Washington says MaxRam will play.. Salty kind of sucks vs lefties and maxram is a righty so I imagine he gets a lot of those starts at catcher and then the occasional DH/1b

I agree.Don't think Max Ramirez will be a spectator while he's up.IMO a guy like Kelly Shoppach seems like a better play than Salty right now for those needing catcher help.
