Outfielder Josh Willingham hurt his left shoulder in the seventh inning of the Twins-Yankess game last night when he slammed into the left field fence while trying to catch a home run.  He’s listed as day-to-day, but the Twins are going to give him an MRI today to see if there’s any damage.

At this point of the year, “day-to-day” and “out for the season” are close to synonymous.  Given that the Twins aren’t playing for anything, it may be a decent time to just tell Willingham to call it a year.  A pretty fantastic year at that, as he hit .260/.366/.524 with 35 homers and 110 RBI.

    With the Twins, “day-to-day” is almost always synonymous with “out for the season.”

    Willingham played hard all season. Let him start the off-season a little early. Like most pro-athletes, I’m sure he’s a fan of other sports so he’s undoubtedly looking forward to watching quality NFL games and a great NHL season. Oh, wait…how about that Lynx team!
