08:11 AM ET 07.15 | Even in a win, the wince on Jose Bautista's did not paint a pretty picture for the Blue Jays. While laying the wood to the powerful New York Yankees, they lost their best player, Jose Bautista, for an indefinite period. The initial diagnosis is a twisted right ankle. Bautista led off the fourth inning hustling down the line on a groundball to deep short. He lunged at the bag as Derek Jeter's throw arrived and was ruled safe, but he limped past the bag and flexed his ankle tentatively while returning to the base. Later, when Edwin Encarnacion grounded to third, Bautista, who had been on second, slid in hard as Eduardo Nunez started the double play. He got up but immediately went to his knees and had to be helped off the field.

That's the problem with the word indefinitely. He could be out a month or he could come back tomorrow.

Jose hit the wall pretty hard feet first making that nice sliding catch in the ASG. Also looked a bit tentative to me trying to score on Beltre's hit, although you knew he wasn't going to clobber McCann (he's much smarter than Pete Rose). Jays are going to be pretty BS if the injury really had its roots in and they lose any time from him due to the ASG, but I'm sure they'd never say anything in public.

Since pretty much everyone on the planet is smarter than Pete Rose, I don't think he was really going out on a limb there. If you doubt that, read his book. We're not talking about a rocket scientist here

This will really only effect fantasy baseball teams, as the Blue Jays weren't going anywhere anyway.

After reading Johnny Damon's Idiot, it is highly unlikely that I'll ever read a book written by a baseball player again. I don't think there is a more aptly named book in the history of literature.

Although I highly recommend McCarver's books if you are having insomnia issues. They're a sure fire cure.

Sure did see Pete play, in person a few times and lots on TV.
Everybody knows he's a moron, I'm sure he'd admit it for $20.

I'd take hairstyle advice from Pete before I'd take posting advice from you, cheesy beef.

All this really does is take a team that is struggling to reach .500 and cements them as a sub-500 team, which is really all that they really are anyway. In otherwords, the injury hurts fans more than it does the team.

Now now, everyone knows that Pete never saw a bowl that he could refuse for his haircuts!!

Anything memorable from that book that you'd like to share with us Slink? We could all use a good laugh now and again.

They're only a sub-500 team because they're in the AL East. I think they'd compete in four of the remaining five divisions and probably win at least three of those. They're a solid team that is in a tough spot because a third of their season is played against three of the best teams in baseball.

Thankfully, I've blocked most of it out, but there's one particular line that I can't seem to shake.

He was describing his childhood in Orlando and said 'Orlando at the time was very unbusy." Technically, "unbusy" is not gramatically wrong, but God damn, that's about as clunky of a sentence that I've read in a published book. His ghost-writer should have his balls stomped on.
