  • Neifi Perez hurt, what are the Cubs options?

    A bit of bad news today, Perez hurt himself and will be out a couple of months. So who are the Cubs going to get for SS and can they recover in time to win the division?

    Cubs' Perez out 2-to-3 months
    By R.B. Fallstrom, AP Sports Writer | April 1, 2006

    Las Vegas -- Chicago Cubs shortstop Neifi Perez will be sidelined at least two to three months because of a torn left groin.
    Perez will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, two days after he got hurt while leaving the dugout during a game against San Diego. Cubs trainer Mark O'Neal said the muscle pulled away from the bone.
    The Cubs, doctors and Perez will decide in the next 10 days whether an operation is needed.
    "The surgery is really going to be determined by is it something that Perez wants to do," O'Neal said. "We're trying to make a determination of what would be the most predictable outcome."
    If Perez opts for surgery, O'Neal said the procedure should be done fairly soon so the muscle heals properly.
    "It's a setback," manager Dusty Baker said. "We don't know yet what is going to happen. We'll have to wait and see."
    Perez was carried off the field after losing his footing coming out of the dugout and collapsing just in front of the dugout in the third inning. Perez is hitting just .279 with seven RBIs this spring.
    For now, Chicago will have to make do with Ronny Cedeno at shortstop and Todd Walker at second base.
    "It's always a loss to lose a player like that," outfielder John Mabry said. "Absolutely, it hurts. We'll have to carry on and hope he gets back as soon as he can."
    "I'm not going to blame the stadium," he said. "The dugout was in great condition, the grounds crew did a great job, and the steps were definitely dry and all of that stuff. I just slipped."
    The injury is the latest in a series of setbacks for the Chicago Cubs since they won NL Division title in 2003. Earlier in the week Cubs starters Mark Prior and Kerry Wood were place on the disabled list.
    After Fridays game, Baker didn't think he was snakebit.
    "It's unfortunate," he said. "You hate for him to go down. Everything has been going well, and now this unfortunate thing happens."

      Seriously? Cause I would think Perez going down would be a GOOD thing for whatever team he plays on. He's not that good...

        The Cubs need all the bodies they can get - their bench is pretty weak.

        But this report was a joke. Neifi is still slated to be healthy and sitting on the Cub bench (where he belongs ) on Opening Day.

          April fools this!
          The Q: Can the Cubs hold a 6-5 lead with 2 outs and nobody on in the 9th?

          The A: No

          ***********My Rant on Bud Selig***********
          Selig is like a stray pigeon. Pigeons are too self-absorbed to care about anyone else. They poo on people they don't like; they poo on people they don't even know. The only real difference between Selig and a pigeon is that Selig intends to bury our heritage, our traditions, and our culture,
