Look, I don’t have a whole lot to say about today’s news that Guti left Spring Training to go have an MRI done that may or may not reveal a serious injury to the pec muscle. For all we know, he’ll be back and as good as new in a day or two.
I’m just saying A. this is bad in that it’s not GOOD. And also B. I don’t want Guti to even miss a day or two! He’s coming off of back-to-back terrible seasons, he went and got himself into terrific shape, and dammit, this was one of the guys I was counting on to bounce back! Not that Guti’s presence will make or break this season, but if he has a THIRD consecutive terrible (or injury-plagued) season, where does that leave us for NEXT year?
Right where we are right now. Hoping. Hoping that he will return to form. Hoping that we will recoup some semblance of his ever-escalating contract. Hoping that we won’t have to worry about the position of Centerfield, even though that’s all we CAN do (is worry) until he shows he’s back to full strength.
Fuck. Fuck me.
