Talk about timing
In the midst of playing some pretty poor baseball the past few weeks, the bad news continued as Shaun Marcum has been placed on the 15 day DL.
The Jays are calling it an elbow strain after a visit with a specialist. Evidently Marcum had been receiving treatment however decided on the move after the discomfort continued. Marcum's 2.65 ERA is second in the American league and he's been one of the better stories for the team in 2008.
This made room for Adam Lind who was recalled. He's been great down in AAA but the exact opposite when playing with the big club. Let's hope he finally gets it right, though he really couldn't be much worse than the rest of the offense at this point.
Aaron Hill continues to be plagued by post-concussion symptoms which is expected to keep him away from the park for some time to come.
When shit is bad, it's just bad. At least it appears everything is okay with the Doc, because if it hadn't been they might has well of mailed it in.
And the villagers rejoice Jays DFA Kevin "oh THAT'S why he was unemployed" Mench and recall BRANDON LEAGUE. Holy shit. The future is now.
