Garver has a stone glove. Absolute concrete. The over/under on balls hitting his glove and not sticking when he catches is 3.5, IMO. I'd put it at 1.5 at first base.

The last thing this team needs is to make the infield defense even worse.

DH, sure.


If Baldelii isn’t going to play him at dh or 1b and he is too injured to catch more than 3 of 10 days, he needs to be on IL.

I need Heezy to interpret this. How can a ruptured tendon not require surgery? The tendon will wither and be beyond repair within a few weeks, won't it? And if it hurt that much when he ruptured it, surely it was doing something useful and important to a batter.

So, in conclusion, what was your question again?

I think it was being discussed on the radio somewhere, and it was suggested that they just remove the ruptured tendon.
Not that that makes it any less confusing.
