    Taveras and his wrist

    If Taveras' wrist is so sore that he was unavailable to even go up and bunt yesterday, shouldn't he be on the DL. Move Volquez to the 60 day and bring up an OF from AAA- even if it is McDonald again.

    On the broadcast yesterday, the Rockies announcers claimed Dusty told them Willy was only available to pinch-run and maybe play defense late in the game. He couldn't swing a bat.

    I was thinking right after I posted that I left that wide-open for some snarky comments.

    Re: Taveras and his wrist

    I'll pass on the easy joke, but i really do wonder if Taveras has been playing hurt for a while now. I remember how EE found out he had been playing with a fratured wrist, and several other guys try to 'tough it out' only to find out their injuries are more serious.

    This has turned out to be a very bad year for injuries. Meanwhile, over in Seattle, Ken Griffey Jr. is still healthy(and hitting .220/.326/.396 for an OPS of .722) , and has played in 80 games so far...lol. Of course he has DH'd a lot of games.....

    Has his wrist bothered him the whole season?

    Maybe it's bothered him since 2005.

    Re: Taveras and his wrist

    Yesterday bugged me A LOT. Why, in the course of this season, it still bugs me is up for debate.

    But CMON... if Willy can't go up there to bunt at 3 pitches, he should be on the DL.
    I have a love-hate relationship with Albert Pujols. Mostly hate.

    Let Dr. Kremcheck take him in for surgery and look at the wrist and the rest of the body its attached to.

    Maybe his wrist is just day-to-day. That could be why they haven't DL'ed him yet. he could be back in the lineup tonight for all we know.
