Injury. Leg I believe. He's day to day. :-/
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I finally dropped him. I thought he might have had a chance to really shine this year with a better Kansas team but now they seem out of contention and will probably get worse once Beltran is traded. His nagging injuries make him too erratic to tolerate.

Injury. Leg I believe. He's day to day.


This in Gonzalezbizzaro World is known as the beginning of vacation.

I've been something of a student of his career ever since he landed with a thud in Detroit a few years ago. When he starts slumping or getting booed (as is the case in KC now) he inevitably succumbs to a series of small ailments which keep him out for a week or so. This all leads up to a major leg or back injury that no doctor can diagnose (see Texas 2003). Then he'll ask to go home to rehab.

I hate to be a cynic, but this pattern repeats itself every year.

Unfortunately, Juan is not one of those competitive types who will do anything to get into a game. He missed a game with Texas because his pants didn't fit right. Good luck.

2003: 82 GP
2002: 70 GP
2001: 140 GP (jeez, he must have been exhausted after that much work)
2000: 115 GP

Cal Ripken, he ain't. And that's why there was zero chance he was going to end up on any of my teams this year.

He's the Dick Allen of this generation -- the player with the most talent that does the least to help his team. In fact may he may even be a net loss.

Although he has two MVP trophies -- give him credit there -- it's surprisigng that he has only been an All-Star three times. That says something, I think. But I don't know what.
