Austin Kearns - OF - Cincinnati Reds Jun 28

Austin Kearns hurt his left leg while making a catch today and will undergo an MRI.
Kearns left the game for a pinch-hitter after making the catch. No word yet on his status.

I really hope he doesn't have to go on the DL with Sweeney already going down on me this week.

great! The start of the injury downfalls for my team most likely. I have been fortunate so far this year, hopefully nothing much will come of this.

Wow, luckily for me I sent away Kearns this morning in a trade.

Looks like it! Nah I just was smart enough to push through a deal that saw me receive Barry Bonds for Furcal and Kearns.

;-D

Thanks, and don't I know it! What's nice about the deal is that Furcal was my backup SS, ARod is my starter.

You basically gave up nothing that will affect your lineup for Barry Bonds! Unless Kearns is fine. But still, Kearns for Bonds is a good deal.

Well the fella needed a new shortstop to replace Jose Hernandez.
