"I spoke with Derrick Goold, a sportswriter who follows the St. Louis Cardinals. I spoke to him this morning. I have known Derrick ever since we went to high school in New Jersey. Derrick told me that the Pujols injury is much more severe than originally reported. He is currently having an MRI done on his right backside as of this email. He has been preliminarily diagnosed with a torn right oblique muscle. Some reports out their have called it a strained oblique. Derrick is being told it is torn, but the MRI will verify. Pujols has very limited mobility. He can't lay down, or even open a door. The pain has gotten significantly worse over the past 24 hours. Best case scenario would be an early July return, but Derrick has been told by team physicians that if he did sustain a tear, his season is in jeopardy. Even if he suffered a strain, and not a tear (which is what is believed to have happened), Pujols may be out until early August. Official news should hit the websites between 5 and 6 pm."
ps a strain is a slight tear, and its been reported already that it is indeed a significant "tear" but this isnt putting his season in jeopardy and i question the validity of this post.
As long as you aren't questioning ME.
I have no idea whether it's true, I simply posted it because it was sent to me. If it isn't in fact true, then hallelujah! As an owner of his in two leagues, I'll throw a celebratory party and invite you all.
