My question is this: if the problem started in winter ball, why on earth didn't he have it checked out?

SARASOTA -- William Bergolla reported to camp with some soreness in his abdomen, after dealing with the same problem during winter ball this year in Venezuela. An MRI has revealed Bergolla has a hernia. The infielder is scheduled to see a specialist here in town tomorrow.

"The only way that this is going to be fixed is through surgery," said Reds trainer Mark Mann. "We’ll have a better idea as far as time in regards to how long he’ll miss after tomorrow’s appointment."

However it goes there, Bergolla is all but guaranteed to begin the year on the disabled list. He was a longshot to make the roster anyway, especially considering he still has an option remaining.

In other medical news today, Ryan Wagner showed up this morning with a 101-degree fever and was immediately sent home.

Maybe he wanted to be sure it got fixed OK.

I think that would be my reason to wait as well. Or maybe he has a bit of a man crush for Doc Hollywood?

That might be it right there. That'd be an interesting pickup line, "Hey, baby, can you fix my hernia?" ;)

Good point. I didn't think of that.

Maybee he thought if he told the Reds they would go out and sign an under performing over the hill vet to take away his chance at making the club.

Oh wait, they did that. Twice.

EARLY SETBACKS - The Reds made it through the first few days of camp without any significant injuries, but it was only a matter of time before something happened.

This year's first victim is infielder William Bergolla, who will see a specialist in Sarasota today after an MRI revealed he has a hernia. Bergolla reported some problems with his abdomen during winter ball in Venezuela but played through it. When the time came for his physical Wednesday morning, Reds physicians noted the pain on the right side of Bergolla's abdomen and had it checked out.

No matter how today's doctor's appointment goes, Bergolla appears ticketed to open the season on the disabled list.

"The only way that this is going to be fixed is through surgery," said Reds trainer Mark Mann. "We'll have a better idea as far as time in regards to how long he'll miss after tomorrow's appointment."

According to Mann, Bergolla had surgery to repair a hernia on his left side two years ago.

The Reds had another brief medical scare Thursday morning, but it turned out not to be too serious. Left-hander Kent Mercker was warming up for his scheduled live batting practice session but kept feeling stiffness and soreness in the muscles of his shoulder and upper back. Mercker walked off the mound and, after some discussion with the medical staff, headed for the clubhouse.

"He really didn't feel like he was getting loose to where he needed to be to throw live BP, so we just backed him down," Mann said. "He had (a similar problem) last spring. It's something that just worked itself out with some treatment and some stretching over the course of a few days."

Mann said he doesn't think the current problem is anything serious and said Mercker will be reevaluated today.

In addition, it seems flu-like symptoms are making the rounds in the clubhouse again. Several players and coaches were felled by the bug last spring, and bench coach Bucky Dent and outfielder DeWayne Wise have felt under the weather so far this spring. Thursday, reliever Ryan Wagner reported to camp with a 101-degree temperature and was immediately sent home.

BERGOLLA OUT: Second baseman William Bergolla has a hernia that needs to be surgically repaired. The Reds don't know exactly how long he'll be out.

"We'll know better after he see the doctor," trainer Mark Mann said.

The hernia was discovered in a pre-camp physical.

Bergolla, 23, played 17 games for the Reds last year, hitting .132. He hit .293 with two home runs, 38 RBI and 16 steals in 98 games for Triple-A Louisville.

With the addition of Tony Womack to an already crowded field at second base, Bergolla had almost no chance of making the team.

Hopefully Aurillia will start at second base over Womack.

And hopefully Ryan Freel will start over Aurillia.

I second that.

I know you guys like Freel, but I think Aurillia is a better choice for second base. Freel does not seem to play well for extended periods of time. Also, I think it would be best if Freel concentrated on playing in the outfield.

Aurilia doesn't play well for extended(like 4 or 5 years) periods of time. Where do suggest Freel play in the OF? He won't start over Griffey, Kearns, or Pena.

Freel will get a lot of time in the OF, just like Kearns and Pena got a lot of playing time last year, even when everyone in the OF was healthy.

I wouldn't mind Freel starting at 2b when Aurillia needs a day off, but I think Aurillia should get the majority of starts at 2b.

I like Freel too, but I think he plays better in the OF than 2b.

If Freel isn't starting, then the Reds don't have anyone to lead off except Lopez, and Lopez doesn't get on base nearly enough.

If, for whatever reason, Freel isn't the leadoff hitter, I go with the following

1. Kearns
2. EddieE
3. Dunn
4. Junior
5. Lopez
6. WMP
7. LaRue
8. Aurillia

Any lineup I produce has Eddie hitting second, by the way. That's where I dig putting young hitters.

These are Aurilia split stats. Seems to me he plays when the Reds are at home and he rides the bench when they are on the road.

Woah pass me waht you are smoking. No way I am batting Kearns and EE before Delipe. What is everyone's obsession with not badding Felipe high in the order?

And if Felipe doesn't get on base enough how does Kearns and EE?
2005 OBP

Felipe .352
Kearns .333
EE .308

Your logic seems flawed. I can understand you wanting to bat EE 2nd if Freel isn't playing everyday because has no ceiling right now, but not Kearns.

2005 SB
Felipe 15 (2nd on team)
EE 3 (in limited playing time)
Kearns 0

No way I am going with that lineup.

Thank god for Tony Womack.



Reds agreed to terms with 3B Edwin Encarnacion and RHP Mike Burns on one-year contracts.
Encarnacion is set to go into the season as a starter, but he may not be a full-time player, as the Reds will seek ways to keep Rich Aurilia and Tony Womack involved. It'll probably be a temporary arrangement. By the time the Reds fall 15 games back in June, it should be obvious that wasting at-bats on Womack isn't a good idea. :D Feb. 25 - 3:15 am et

BTW, we all know that you were only kidding, Redsland. We'd never confuse you with DanO.;)

SARASOTA -- So now it turns out that William Bergolla does not have a hernia, as was previously thought to be the case. According to trainer Mark Mann, radiologists in both Cincinnati and Sarasota checked out Bergolla's MRI and couldn't find a hernia. That means the new diagnosis is a "high groin strain."

Speaking of potential injuries, Ken Griffey Jr. and Paul Wilson are stalking the complex right now with a paintball gun. That's Junior's newest hobby. I'm afraid, very afraid.

.

Career OBP
Kearns .360
Lopez .322

Both those career numbers include last year. Kearns has gotten on base much better then Lopez so far.

If the team was going to contend, I'd put Lopez in the two slot, but since they probably won't, I want EddieE getting as many PA's as possible. I'm more comfortable with Kearns on top.

And what is the treat for a "high groin strain"? How long will he be out?
