    Rafael Furcal - Out for Season

    Just announced that Furcal will be having Tommy John surgery and is out for year. Who replaces him, Kozma?

    One of the greatest IF arms ever when he was a young player. IMO only Shawon Dunston had a better arm at SS.

    Although he only played briefly in the majors, Jerry Gil could rocket that ball to first.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    So could Janish but most Reds fans I'm assuming have blocked him from their memories. When he let it loose it was a cannon.

    Yet his performances on the mound during pitching emergencies were very poor

    Coincidentally, Gil had Tommy John surgery, too.

    What's even more odd is that Tommy John also had Tommy John surgery

    But nobody ever compared his arm to Shawon Dunston or Furcal

    Although that's true, Tommy John's son (RIP) was lauded for his range for his role in Les Misérables on Broadway.

    You ever think what a coincidence it is that Lou Gehrig died of Lou Gehrig's disease?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Wow. When did they find the tear? Just a few days ago I saw where they said an MRI showed inflammation but no tear

    Jay Jaffe, on CNNSI, saw it coming.

    Fast forward a week, and Furcal has been shut down due to a significant setback; an exam revealed that he’s dealing with inflammation around a Grade 2 tear of his UCL. He’s now headed to visit Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion — a 10-word phrase that usually suggests impending doom.
