Turns out that Nomar tore his groin muscle (OUCH!) (story.news.yahoo.com) last night & may end up needing surgery.

So now the Cubs are without both starting middle infielders, but at least Nomar has Mia to massage him back to health...

I can't wait for Derek Jeter to get hit in the head again. Mainly because I don't like the Yankees!

The Cubs are being killed by injuries. Between Nomah, Wood and Prior, this team that should be good on paper is just not able to get everyone gelling at the same moment.

Prior is fine - as he said he was at the end of spring training. I don't think Wood ever will be "fine" again, since his mechanics seem to have become so screwed up. He's adjusted his motion so many times to account for one ailment or another that he has no idea where "correct" is on his mechanics.

As for Nomar, what can you do? Replace him with some one else and hope that they can hit well.

Oh yes, Neifi will definitely have no problem living up to the sub .200 avg Nomar was sporting. Maybe if we combine him and Macias, we might have a .300 hitter this year.

And has 3 hits in 17 ABs the past 4 games. Neifi hate represent!

I'm hitting .367 total in MVP Baseball 2005 with the Cubs (a roster that does not include Neifi OR Macias, mind you), so I win, sort of, in a nerdy, loser sort of way.

But seriously, I realize Dusty can work wonders with washed out, mediocre players, but I just don't feel even he can make Neifi into what passes for a hitter all season. I hope I'm wrong, as he will be around all season, but I'd just like to see other options used when Walker/Nomar come back.

I kept Neifi! on my MVP team, but I canned Macias as soon as I could.

Back to Nomar. Somebody besides the Boston Lunatic Bob Ryan needs to bring up the S Word when it comes to Nomar. 234 games missed due to injury in the past 4 years. Seemingly slow recovery time to every injury. This injury was a fluke and a painful fluke at that. Torn off the bone. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
