Wow, an injured Toronto Blue Jays player? That’s unpossible!

Brett Lawrie has a strained oblique and has missed several games now, and it’s not getting any better, to the Jays are sending him to the DL retroactive to August 4.

Lawrie, who is hitting  .282/.326/.416 with nine homers, should be ready to come off as soon as he’s eligible a week from Sunday.

    DL you say? Really? Water’s wet, cows moo and Jobu do my boys no favours. What’s next, I wonder? Surgery? Yeah, probably surgery. My Boys haven’t had to send a position for surgery yet…

    The Brewers would be absolutely stacked right now on offense if they hadn’t traded it all for Marcum and Grienke, but they got to the NLCS, so I guess it worked out.

    It’s been that kind of season where if even R.A. Dickey was pitching for the Jays he’d probably need TJ surgery too….

    The typical progression of events whenever almost any baseball player is injured.

    1) Player is injured.
    2) Team announces injury is minor, describes player as day-to-day.
    3) Player announces injury is minor, says he will be back on the field in a couple days.
    4) Player doesn’t take the field on the day specified, but says he will definitely not go on the disabled list.
    5) Player still sidelined, team expresses optimism a trip to the disabled list won’t be necessary.
    6) Player is placed on the disabled list.

    There is a similar chain of events once most players are actually placed on the disabled list.
