I believe season ending surgery is in order. Even if its just to remove a hang nail. I'm thinking Adam has the gout.

60 day DL seems like the right move to me!

Could this be laying the groundwork for a phantom injury that allows Dunn to be put on the DL and go to AAA to rehab?

He would have to first spend his DL time on the DL, and the MLBPA will want to see doctors reports if his rehab stint is more than three or four games.

Perhaps he really does have a sore knee, who knows. However, the Sox could also just come out and say Dunn is the worst hitter against lefties they've ever seen and his 2 hits off of lefties this year were both luck so they've decided to bench him.

The fifteen days off while on the DL couldn't do him any harm at this point and may actually do him some good. All he has to do is keep telling the doctors his knee is sore for another week or two (after the DL stint) while he is doing his re-hab. The Knights can keep pulling him for a pinch-runner late in games providing he even gets on base. I think the agreement between MLB and the MLPA allows a certain length for rehab stints - not sure how long but I'm pretty sure it's more than a few days.

Anything more than a few starts would be considered a return from serious injury, meaning thirty days or more on the DL, and sitting is not going to help Dunn get his timing back.

I don't know if the players' association would be as troubled as the commissioner's office. The 60-day DL would allow the Sox to make an addition to the 40-man roster, which could raise someone's salary.

The 15-day DL, of course, doesn't have to last just 15 days, and could conceivably run into the September callups. The assumption would have to be that Dunn would be OK with such a move

But the reality is that Dunn would have to be legitimately injured to pull such a thing off. The man didn't go on the DL when he had surgery in April.

Meanwhile Ozzie the clown puts Ramirez at DH and he is hitless
against Cy Chen.:scratch::scratch:

Alexei is probably the 3rd best hitter on the team, who, praytell, is Ozzie supposed to DH instead? Lillibridge? Flowers? Peavy?

The whole team was getting no-hit through 4 so it's not like Alexei's just struggling.

Good way to get Alexei some rest and keep him in the lineup and all this griping about Chen, the guy has a 3.30 ERA currently including tonight.

He's lowered that ERA by facing Sox hitters.

The problem is neither is playing, and he's killing the team especially in the 3 or 4 hole.

I feel there was a missed opportunity here. Thread should have been titled, "Donkey has a wonk knee" or something. Did he hurt it wrestling Shrek or knocking down shots with Disturbed? He couldn't have hurt it on the basepaths.

His .158 average tells me that he doesn't have any timing to begin with.

So it's a sore kneee now. Figures. Underachievement and slacking explained off by newly revealed injury.

This is a wondeful excuse to put him on the 15 day DL.

well to be fair, with only 5 hits a lot of folks went hitless. I mean it's Bruce Chen who hits him? Oh that's right, everybody!

Then call up Viciedo, hopefully.

This whole Viciedo thing reminds me of Bacon. I can't wait til he struggles at a major league level and the same people who say bring him up turn on the organization and complain that he's been rushed.

Actually, Chen has been pretty effective this season. I think he has 7 starts of at least six innings with 2 or less earned runs.

His contract's insurance policy kicks in if he is on the DL right? If so, place him on the DL for the next 3 and a half seasons.

Of course I'm not being serious. It's possible to be sarcastic without the use of teal. :smile:
