A lot has been written about Shields' mentoring skills and how the Sox are very pleased with the mentoring he has given the young arms. Since we were not trying to be in contention when we obtained him, I'm calling the trade a good one for us since it has given another person who can help the young ones along. If Anderson fully blossoms, then the talk about Tatis will be muted.

I am doubtful that this trade will ever be a "good one" for the Sox. It's one that all of us would love to have back, but what's done is done. We can all move on.

Heard on WBBM today that Berger was "carted off" the field with a "lower left leg" injury trying to beat out a bunt.

No, that isn't right. He hit a routine chopper to third base and ran down the line. About 2/3 of the way, he simply fell down. It is being reported that he tore his Achilles' tendon.

If true, I imagine he'll miss the rest of this year.

I'd agree with everything you said but I remember that the White Sox traded for Shields b/c they were looking to get over the hump.

That sucks- I wonder if his heft has anything to do with this since he is a bigger guy. Not trying to make fun of him, but he may be better off dropping a few pounds and replacing it with muscle.

Has a lot of hitting talent. Not sure if this can mess him up for the rest of his career. Let's hope he is okay. In more athletic sports, this could end a career.

He may be a first baseman now.

Still a lot of talent to pay attention to down there so, while I am saddened, this is not a huge blow. I now think we have our Abreu replacement in Burger.

Some nice positive quotes from Burger today. No doubt he's deeply disappointed, but you gotta love his attitude. Interesting that Abreu says he suffered a similar injury in 2008.

I had wondered about that too. This is just an uneducated question on my part, though. I don't know if anyone else can chime in on that.

I'm not sure this necessarily spells the end of his career as a third baseman. Of course, whether he is able to stick at 3rd has been a question even before this injury.

Dan Marino came back from the same injury and excelled.
