That’s a pretty common injury, with a good recovery rate and no long term effects. The people that are down on Grossman think that he doesn’t have the speed for center field, and doesn’t have the bat or the power for a corner spot. Not sure if the MLB.com rankings classify him this way, but that’s what I’ve heard from the people who rate him lower.

I used to have those books/newspapers but I lent them to a friend who tossed them. “Oh, you wanted them back”?

He is no longer a close friend. :)

The next year we had 3 of the top 13 with Benson, AmRam, Hermansen.

Do you think his hamate opperation had anything to do with it? Do we know if he has taken any batting since the injury and how it’s progressing?

Edit: Didnt read down far enough, thanks for finding that list

Wow……….Abe Nunez and Fat Jimmy. I wonder how good Ron Wright would’ve been had he not blown out his back. And, of course, Chad and Anna, er ah Kris Benson. Only ARam and Jose Guillen came close to being what they should’ve been.
