First of all, I would like to let everyone know about Danny Knobler's weblog over at MLive. It is really great and has a lot of insider type stuff to read about.

Bad news, but who didn't see it coming? The diagnosis we got after the injury sounded bad, and this confirms it. Good thing the team signed a closer in Todd Jones this offseason.
