That's what I was gonna say... Juan Gon is only out there for the money, and these fools keep giving it to him. The second something minor goes wrong with him, I'm sure he'll take a week off, or if he's already played 50 games he might just say "screw it" and sit out the rest of the year.

ESPN News wrote:Cleveland Indians: Outfielder Juan Gonzalez has a strained left hamstring.

"He wasn't going to play today for sure," manager Eric Wedge said after Wednesday's game against the New York Yankees was rained out.

"Juan felt some tightness and I won't really know a lot more until he gets out there on a good day and gives it a try," Wedge said.

"Obviously, we were hoping something like this wouldn't happen. We need to see him on a constant basis."

Gonzalez, 35, is back with Cleveland after three injury-plagued seasons with the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals.

He played only 33 games last year for the Royals and none after May 22 because of strained back. A right thumb injury limited him to 70 games with Texas in 2002 and a right calf injury cut short his 2003 season with the Rangers after 82 games.

"It's still early and this doesn't jeopardize things, but we've got to get him healthy and back out there," Wedge said.

Gonzalez hit .325 with 35 homers and 140 RBI for the Indians in 2001 before signing as a free agent with Texas.

Juan Gone is injured! 8-o


it must be serious, hes the type of guy who plays through pain for the betterment of the team :-°
at least some team isnt paying him 4 million to play 33 games! Not one of Allard's brighter moments but the Royals will rebound.

To be fair to Griffey here ... his injuries have all been legitimate breaks, rips, cracks and other sundry types of trauma.

Juan Gone's injuries, on the other hand, have all been of the "whiplash" type -- undetectable (or generally unpraveable) strains, minor pulls and spasams. In Detroit he had a cold for more than 2 weeks.

In fact a team of doctors (and you have to assume that these guys were top-tier professionals) couldn't find ANYTHING wrong with Gonzalezes back when he decided to high-tail it South of thge border 2 months before the season ended in 2003.

The guy is a fraud.

Juan is a plague that will ruin any team he is on. So much talent wasted...
