You know, just yesterday I had a discussion with some folks about whether or not Zoom would be ready to close this coming season (I said no). And now this. Oy.
The Freep says that Zumaya is expected to miss half of ’08 season after shoulder surgery. Dombrowski should be conference-calling a bunch of reporters as we speak. I’ll update this post with details as I get ’em/when I’m not in class, and I’ll get some helpful images up later tonight. In the meantime, please read that third baseman poem to restore your blood pressure to its normal levels.
Zoom went under the knife yesterday for what the Freep is calling “AC joint reconstruction” for an injury he sustained while “moving personal items during the California wildfires”. Read: he separated his shoulder by moving boxes.
This is the third fairly major injury Zoom has sustained in a couple of seasons, and it’s the second more-or-less non-baseball-related injury. I am not pleased.
I’d also like to insert a quick personal note to Zoom himself.
Dear Joel Zumaya,
You are a Major League Baseball player. You have money. Hire a bloody moving service.
Minimal love until you stop doing this stuff,
Roar of the Tigers
