Read it and weep, fellow fans http://bit.ly/crYSry, the ace has gone down. What else? Can we really believe that the misfortune is over? I can't. The most troubling thing is the uncertainty of the recovery. Some say 24 weeks. Some say that this injury is uncommon for pitchers, so it is a big unknown. Regardless, there's no way that Johan can be counted in for opening day. And on a team that does not seem inclined to spend money this off season, this is particularly damaging. Not to mention, this is 3 years in a row that Johan ends the season with a surgety-requiring injury. Ohhhhh boy!
Well, I got a call today for my "consolation" free tickets. The question is, is this team worth that price?
