The headline should be "This is getting ridiculous". Moises Alou came off the disabled list for a strained calf muscle yesterday only to leave the game with soreness. He’s not in the lineup tonight claiming that the calf doesn’t feel right.
I love to watch Alou hit and think he has a tremendous positive influence on the offense when he’s in the game. But this injury-prone act can’t go on forever.
I don’t know how severe the calf problem is, only Alou does. But Ryan Church tried to power through post concussion syndrome for two weeks. Alou can’t play with a sore calf for nine innings during the most trying period of the season? That is ridiculous.
