    Put Junior in a bubble!

    Cincinnati Reds OF Ken Griffey Jr. (pleurisy) has been diagnosed with pleurisy, an inflammation in the lining of the cavity surrounding the lungs, according to the Associated Press. He is listed as day-to-day, and although he was not in the starting lineup for the second consecutive game, Friday, April 27, Griffey walked in a pinch-hitting appearance.
    I think he may have finally surpassed me on the list of most fragile human beings alive. Congrats Ken!

    These aren't just injuries now...they're medical conditions.

    The second disease this season he's got that I've never heard of.

    Why not put him on the DL if hes having these health problems?

    This is truly amazing, I didn't think anyone had gotten pleurisy since the 1880s. I expect Griffey to be down with the catarrh, ague, dropsy, and grippe before the end of the season. Luckily Kremchek has him on lemon juice to ward off the foul scurvy.

    I hope Jr. doesn't have a more serious underlying illness.

    Isn't pleurisy one of the ailments you or your family can get when you play Oregon Trail? Or am I confusing it with dysentary again?

    I was wondering the same thing.

    I'm also questioning why not him put him on the DL, let him rest and get healthy. It's hard enough to win with 25 guys on this team, let alone 24.

    I actually got it about 7-8 years ago. Its viral and its about one step away from pnumonia(sp?) VERY painful. If he's got that and the IBS thing at the same time that AB last night was impressive.

    I'd rep you for making me laugh if I could though. Good stuff.

    The first illness could easily have caused the second. I wouldn't worry(but hope he's ok obviously).

    I don't think so... it would be a longshot.

    What's the Reds record with him in the lineup compared to without him? I believe we fare better when he starts. Anyone got numbers on that?

    Also, Jr is one of our best clutch hitters right now. We really need him to play.
