SPOILER ALERT! Kerry Wood is out for 6 to 8 weeks with a strained dorsi muscle. I thought only dolphins had dorsi muscles. Huh. Wait! Maybe Kerry Wood’s a dolphin. He does seem like he’d be good at Connect Four… underwater. Nah, couldn’t be. Though I could see him getting injured trying to remove a beer from a six pack holder. Hmm… maybe. Alas, for another day. Chris Perez is the pickup. If my money’s good at this rodeo, Kerry Wood’s not coming back until the All-Star Break and even then he’s no sure thing. Anyway, here’s some other fantasy baseball news:
Huston Street – Suffering from only shoulder inflammation. Could resume closer’s role by late-April. Put this in the file of, See Then Believe.
J.P. Howell – Out for 3 weeks with a sore shoulder. Can’t The Professor cook him up a cure with some coconuts and straw?
Dioner Navarro – Hurt his leg on a collision. Could mean more playing time for Kelly Shoppach. Those who like their ctachers late, take notice.
Cliff Lee – The Adverb might miss a start with an ab strain. Sounds like someone needs to leave Suzanne Somers’ workouts to the ladies.
