Well if the Reds say it is day to day then he will end up on the 15. If the Reds put him on the 15 then it will probably be a month, and if the Reds say he will be a couple months then he will need season ending surgery.

Losing AK and EE at the same time for a few weeks would be bad.

I'm thinking with his history, Kearns is headed to the DL. Hopefully The Legend and Freel can fill in.

My worry is they wouldn't let Deno fill in, they would start Q :runawaycr

Freel would start in right instead, right?

"Freel plays too hard to play everyday." said Manager Jerry Narron.

Q is your man.

According to this from the Enquirer today, he should be back tonight:


In the end, Austin Kearns was in the trainer's room.

Yelling at the TV. Pulling for his teammates to win the game.

But it wasn't to be. The Reds had loaded the bases with none out against Chicago Cubs closer Ryan Dempster in the ninth inning and scored one run, but they lost 6-5 before a sellout crowd Friday.

"It shouldn't have come to that," Kearns said. "We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a couple of times."

He blamed himself for losing a ball in the lights in the seventh inning, a miscue on which two runs scored to make it 6-2.

But just before that, Reds shortstop Felipe Lopez had thrown a ball - one that could have led to a double play that would have ended the inning with the Reds down only 3-2 - high to first base. Former Red Todd Walker singled in a run just after that, then the two runs scored on the lost-in-the-lights ball.

It was as you might have expected Friday: fielding shortcomings - the old bugaboo always lingering just below the surface with the Reds - had caught up with them.

Kearns, a good fielder, is rarely in the middle of it. But this is how eight-game winning streaks end.

"Every night there's sort of a twilight where it's tough to see," he said. "I didn't see it, and when I did, I felt like I needed to take a step back, and that's when my leg gave out and cramped up."

He had to come out of the game after his next at-bat, on which he singled, for a pinch runner, but he said he'll be back today.

Maybe it was good that Reds manager Jerry Narron wasn't around to see this one; he was attending his daughter Clare's high school graduation in North Carolina. Bucky Dent took over in Narron's absence.

The Reds had two errors, both by catcher Javier Valentin in the fifth inning, but the Cubs didn't score.
