Curtis Gets the Finger from the DL

Put the Easter eggs down before you read this. Instead of injury speculation in the previous post, we now have some injury confirmation, courtesy of's Danny Knobler.

Curtis Granderson was hit on the right hand by a pitch in yesterday's game vs. the Philadelphia Phillies, and the injury was initially thought to be nothing more than a bruise. Unfortunately, after X-rays were taken of Granderson's hand, a non-displaced was found in his right middle finger. According to Knobler, Curtis is expected to be out of the lineup for three weeks.

So who plays center field in Granderson's absence? Jacque Jones? Ryan Raburn? Brandon Inge, if he's not traded? Does this put Freddy Guzman on the Opening Day roster?

And who bats leadoff? Jones? Edgar Renteria? Placido Polanco?

Why does bad news always follow the good in this life? Or is that just my own personal belief?
