ESPN has him listed for 4-6 weeks. It is now almost three months!

i don't think anyone knows. IMO, i'd be real surprised if he came back at all this season. But...

They were talking 8-12 weeks at the end of April. I'd bet on the long end of that. That puts him the end of July.

He's supposed to go on a rehab stint any day now. Ordonez thinks he can come back before the All-Star break, but it depends on how long the rehab stint goes. At this point it seems like he'll likely return right after the break.

I can't wait for him to come back because I have tickets for when the Tigers come to town in August. I hope he is their so I can boo the Crap out of him. Any sign ideas.

I read this morning that he is supposed to start a rehab stint this week and Trammel wants him to get at least 30 at-bats down there, which is roughly 10 games or so.

The day after he can't possibly be on the DL for enough games for a bad knee and void his contract.

I just want to see him trying to play RF.

That's what I was thinking. You know he is counting the days on his calendar just hoping he can get the rest of that contract guaranteed.

I have tickets for the July 19th game and hopefully I'll get to boo the crap out of him, I also won a chance to be on the field for BP that day at a Marklund Top Hat Ball, maybe I'll get to see him up close so I can call him out to his face.

I don't think you guys realize how long it takes to recover from the suspicious limp you get when you have a hernia that a specialist says isn't a hernia.

Cut the guy some slack. :rolleyes:

I think his conditioning should include him dragging bags full of his money from this season up and down the foul lines.


I don't believe that he'll be back longer than a week if at all. Its just not possible when your knee is that badly injured.... or hernia whatever he wants to call it.

The best thing that happened to this team this off-season is that Ordonez and Williams were not able to come to an agreement. The Sox might have been paying that guy $15 mil a season for the next four years had he agreed.Then there would have been no Dye, Pierczynski, El Duque and Iguchi and no shot of signing Konerko next season.

At least we'd have something to complain about then...

No kidding, we would be in trouble if he was still under contract. Although considering the timing of signings and such, we basically traded Maggs for:
Garcia ($9MM)
Contreras (2MM over Loiaza),
most of Dye ($3MM of the $4.5MM).
Oh wait, I forgot about Reed and Olivo.

Getting rid of CLee enabled us to aquire Podsednik, El Duque, AJ, and most of Iguchi's salary.

Wow, just typing that blows my mind- that has to be the best off-season in a LONG time.

I was definitely upset when they said they couldn't come to an agreement, but I knew KW had a backup plan (well, I was hoping at least). And he proceeded to have a hell of an offseason.

Maggs is supposed to be starting a rehab assignment to AAA in 4-5 days:

Ordonez said the time off has strengthened his surgically repaired knee, a concern when the Tigers signed him.
Yeah, no kidding. And, can you imagine what not playing on it at all will do for it?
"I'm like a bullfighter," Ordonez said. "If the bulls don't kill me, I'll be back."

That was one heck of a hernia.

There must be a nerve or blood vessel or something that was making a connection to his knee as well...of course...that's it!

I loved Maggs until last season when all that contract BS tainted his time with the Sox and then the injury and mysterious tour of doctors basically numbered his days on our roster. I might still wish him the best if he hadn't trashed Ozzie and KW in the papers afterwards especially when he hasn't proven he can ever play again.

I finally gave away his bobblehead to a garage sale and he can limp around on his "herniate" knee for the rest of his career for all I care. I remember watching that collision with Harris and hoping he would walk it off. A year later and he's not much better.

uh oh......


Starter Jason Grilli's eight-inning no-decision was one of his better efforts with eight strikeouts.

what the hell happened to Carlos Pena?

he's been out for a while... I don't remember what the issue was... not like it matters, he's the firstbase version of Crede minus the defense.

Pena had a slow start with Detroit this year, so they sent him down and brought up Chris Shelton, the Hens hottest hitter. Shelton is hitting well with Detroit, around .300, and now Pena is pounding the ball for the Mud Hens. Pena hit 27 home runs for Detroit last year, and I think he also has a big contract. Kind of strange they sent him down so quickly.

Pena has had a great attitude, says he loves it in Toledo and will do whatever the Tigers want him to. He's also been an excellent first baseman so far with the Hens.

Remember when Manny Ramirez went on rehab with Pawtucket and said he'd rather stay there than go back up with the Red Sox? Maybe it's the same thing with Carlos. He's a fan favorite with the Hens.

ManRam said that?!?! Wow. I knew he was clueless, but.... Wow!

Mags, get healthy soon so we can plunk you.

From the Detroit Free Press - in addition to comments on Ordonez by alan Trammel, there's a quote from Brandon McCarthy about his performance:

"It's going to take some time before we see Magglio at 100 percent," Trammell said.

A long time as in NEVER.
