From Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer comes word that new Indians left fielder Johnny Damon made a premature exit from Wednesday’s game against the White Sox due to what is being described as “general cramping.”

Damon officially joined the Indians on Tuesday and was making his Cleveland debut tonight. The 38-year-old finished 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.

Cramping is usually a day-to-day thing, but there’s been no word from the Tribe about the severity of it.

Shelley Duncan and Aaron Cunningham took turns filling in. The Indians have a night game Thursday.

    I bet Jon Heyman is experiencing sympathy pains.

    Chief Wahoo has that effect on a lot of people.

    Joining the Cleveland club will do that, and more, to anyone.

    Must be Damon’s time of the month.

    It also happens when you’re old, out of shape and washed up.

    I see I’m late to the Midol joke party. Can I still rip him for hanging onto those 90210 sideburns? I say yes.

    Is “General Cramping” still a member of the armed forces or has he retired?

    Last time I had “general cramping” it was after prolonged battle with a bottle of tequila…

      Me, I just came up for air too quickly.

    I heard General Cramping killed chief Wahoo.
