The Dodgers insist Gagne will be back this year.

Quote:
According to the Los Angeles Times, "Eric Gagne's elbow surgery Friday was "a very simple little thing," according to Dr. Frank Jobe, and the All-Star closer could be back by late May. Jobe and Dr. Ralph Gambardella removed a sensory nerve that caused pain when Gagne threw, digging just beneath the skin and cutting it out in a 30-minute procedure. Jobe said the ligament appeared strong. "Now it's just a matter of the skin healing," he said. The Dodgers can only hope Gagne's recovery goes as smoothly as Jobe predicts. Last year, Gagne suffered a sprained elbow ligament at the end of spring training because he had rushed back from a knee injury, then had the June surgery after appearing in 14 games."

Rockies up big early, with Zach Day pitching.

If they come out of April at .500 or better, watch out. They could be right in there in the mediocre NL West.

The Rockies needed to get out of pitching friendly Coors Field and into a hitters park like Petco to get their bats going. 22 runs in two games against the Padres.

Hey Cardinal fans, anybody have an update on Anthony Reyes? I was disappointed that he couldn't nail down a spot in the rotation this spring. Then really disappointed when they sent him to Rochester. Is a callup likely in the next few weeks?

Did you draft Anthony Reyes on your NL only squad? He didn't have the greatest debut with Triple-A Memphis.

Regardless of the Dave Duncan factor, I don't think anybody can save Ponson's lard ass from sucking.

Here are a few other NL notables to watch in Chad Billingsley and Jason Hirsh:

Double digit run games are so rare at Petco Park. The Rockies had the best record in the 2nd half in the NL West. I still think they need to get Yorbit healthy and find themselves a 2B. Jason Smith isn't going to get the job done there.

Yeah, I'm carrying him on my bench right now because there's literally nobody on the waiver wire worth picking up. I'm thinking about taking a flyer on Jon Rauch in the hopes Washington will put him in the rotation.

My Ace is spinning a two-hit masterpiece through seven in Seattle.

On the bad news front CBS4 Boston has learned that CF Coco Crisp has fractured his left index finger and could be out 6 to 8 weeks. Just when things were going so well.

I could have traded him last week, too. Oh well, at least I found out in time to get him out of this week's starting lineup.

Bannister pitched a solid 7 innings today and Beltran hit one of the longest bombs RFK has ever seen. Mets win 7-1.

Yanks are up 9-7 in there home opener. Man on 1st and 2nd with 1 out top of the ninth, Mariano on the mound.

Gagne will never be the same. Not even close. And that's IF he makes it back.

Anyone who doubts that he was on roids his miraculous seasons is ignorant.

But he was just one of many that juiced, in addition to BB. Perhaps someone will write a book about him one day ;-)
