Fuck and No.

Marc Lancaster is reporting that an MRI revealed that Cliff Floyd has a torn medial meniscus. He will need to have surgery and has been put on the 15 day DL. Ruggiano has been called up from AAA to take his spot on the roster.

This is just fantastic. The best pure hitter on the team is already out. I knew he was injury prone but I didn't expect it to happen this quickly. Looks like we will be seeing a lot of Gomes and Hinske in the DH spot. Hopefully, they don't let those guys play RF anymore. I would rather have non-hitting bats such as Haynes, Johnson, or Ruggiano in the line-up than have to watch another games with Gomes or Hinske in the outfield.

Also, according to Lancaster, Howell still is in the running to get Garza's next start - Niemann is apparently not a lock to be called up.

I agree with you...Hinske has been awful in RF. The attempt against the wall on the Abreau triple was pathetic (and on national TV). Floyd injury not good...
