The injury itself isn't bad and this is strictly a precautionary measure. If Baker was doing well this spring, he'd be starting opening night.

Thank you for the voice of reason....

NOT good for a team with Joey Devine, Scott Baker, Sean Gallagher, Carlos Marmol as pitchers. WTF was I thinking?

Well, the only one I'm worried about right now is Devine. He's the one who's going to visit Dr. Andrews in Alabama. I haven't heard that yet about the other guys. Baker should be OK and will probably only miss his few two starts. Marmol I think will eventually take over the closer role at some point this year. I don't think Kevin Gregg is really the answer in Chicago, so if Gregg struggles too much more than likely Marmol will take over. Cubs fans are a little more vocal about things like this than Marlins fans are, that's why Gregg held onto his job for most of last year until he got hurt. So if there is a silver lining in all this, that has to be it for you. ;-)
