LaRue Out of Scope

By now, Jason LaRue has probably already undergone arthroscopic surgery on his knee to repair a torn meniscus. He's slated to be out for 10 to 14 days, which is consistent with what they told me when I was facing this surgery. But I don't think that estimate takes into account the fact that LaRue is the toughest thing since Aunt Betsy's pot roast. He'll probably be back at it later this afternoon.

OK, I guess the medical staff will probably prevent LaRue from actually doing that. And assuming that the Latin Love Machine doesn't end up on the reality end of one of the rampant trade rumors, I suppose that means that we'll see Javy Valentín behind the plate on opening day.

And to think I'm going to miss it. Oh well, I'll have the GameDay on my computer at work. That's practically the same thing. At least that's what I tell myself.

Anyway, get well soon, Jason.
