It's only an injury if it forces him out of the game, remember? The 2010 season hangs in an MRI tube today. Among infielders, only Ryan Howard remains unbreakable. So help me God, if there's a lineup of Castro, Valdez and Schneider out there tonight, there will be vomit.
Happ, Bastardo, Durbin in various stages of rehab. Ruiz out until at least Saturday. Oh, and a scheduling note: The May snow-out in Denver has been rescheduled for September 2.
If there's a question mark after 24 seasons, that's also an indication. But while he's at it, Bill sez suck it, yo:

Prospectus: Top 10 Week: General Manager candidates (sub. req'd). Scott Proefrock at number 3.
Talking Chop: Stras-Who: Hudson Outduels Some Guy, Braves Top Nats, 5-0. It was 0-0 in the 7th, and the Nats defense didn't help.
Durham 3, Lehigh Valley 2. Ryan Vogelsong blows it in the 9th. The Pigs are 7-23 in 1-run games. Tonight looks interesting in Coca-Cola Park: J. A. Happ will start the opener of tonight's doubleheader, Phanatic's gonna be there, and Dom Brown will make his first home appearance.
Reading Rolls Past Fisher Cats. R-Phils score 7 in the first and cruise to 8-3 win. Kyle Drabek pitches for the Fisher Cats tonight against Vance Worley. Congrats Matt Rizzotti, Eastern League Player of the Week.
Garcia hits his way to Threshers record. Harold Garcia has a 31-gamer as part of a 7-3 win over Dunedin. Step aside, Quintin Berry!
Auburn cruises by Crosscutters for 6-1 win. Wait a minute. There's now something called ESPNWilliamsport.com.
GCL: Phillies 9, Braves 0. Manzanillo follows Biddle with a nice start.
