So at the end of today, Span will have been unavailable for a week and still not on the DL. Is he close to returning?
"Span's doing some (batting) cage work and doing some things," assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "He says it's feeling better, moving in the right direction."
Well. That tells us exactly nothing. Here's the thing: if they don't know when he's going to return, then it likely means it's not close and he should be on the DL. And if they know, then tell us. "Doing some thing?" "Moving in the right direction?" "Feeling better?" Really?
And here's the other thing: I have delayed starting this thread for a couple days because I know it isn't likely to generate a lot of intelligent discussion, just a lot of cheap shots. But I'm doing so for 2 reasons. First, because it's news dammit.
And second, because the reason it is going to be a bunch of cheap shots is because we've been down this road umpteen times. There isn't a lot of intelligent discussion that hasn't already been said. And yet things stay the same. When you keep doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again, eventually, all that's left is to dream up different ways to illustrate how stupid it is. Which brings us to the cheap shots....
