Benitez to DL


Recommended Posts

Giants placed closer Armando Benitez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Has there ever been a worse month for closers than April 2005? The Giants have yet to comment on whether Benitez will miss more than two weeks. Jim Brower becomes the favorite for saves in San Francisco. Scott Eyre could also get oppotunities. Apr. 27 - 2:04 pm et

The West is just mediocre enough where the Giants can win it.



Fair enough... And I just saw a somewhat comforting stat as well. Last season, Barry was tearing the league up in April and the Giants were 8-13 and 5 games back in the NL West. Through the same amount of games this year, they are 10-11 and 3 1/2 games back. It's way too early to look at standings, but this shows that the Giants can't simply win by Barry going on a tear. Last season, they didn't have a closer and found a way to bounce back and win 91 games. The rest of the team stepped it up, as they will again this season... I hope anyways... :confused

so does this mean Aardsma is gonna get the call?


nah, they sent Aardsma down to AA so they can try to convert him to a starting pitcher (he's been doing pretty well too BTW)....

they called up Scott Munter, but I was hoping it would be Matt Cain or Jesse Foppert

i find the fact that you think bonds will return in a week or 2 comical.


the man is still limping and just had liquid removed from his knee for the second time since surgery last week.


he has not done any baseball activities and all the news storys say hes still at least 2 months away.

sucks for papi, though throwing out a hammy while covering first is totally the kind of injury i could have envisioned him suffering.


dude's out of shape.


I'm not sure it has to do with being out of shape. This is the same injury that's plagued Griffey and I don't think you'd consider him out of shape. It's just one of those freak accidents.
