THIS is a problem...

While we're all happy around here about the Ryan Braun signing, THIS I find to be disturbing...if the injury is serious.

I was at the game last night, 10 rows behind the Brewer dugout. Riske threw a pitch, and immediately called for Yost and the trainer. They walked to the mound, and he walked right off the field. It didn't look good. Attanasio snuck up to the dugout to ask what was up. Yost gave him a quick answer, and he snuck back to his seat.

Riske is just a great guy out in that bullpen. He can go multiple innings or close. He is scary competitive (watch him scream into his glove after each inning). Plus, he savors the flavor with that rocking piece of facial hair.

We hope it's nothing. All I'm saying is that it didn't look good the way he came out. Speculate all you want from that.

Melvin was on AM 620 this morning and said that the thinking was that it didn't appear to be too serious when he left the ballpark last night....

But then he went on to say that this is what they thought about Gallardo too.

I'm sure he blew an ulnar collateral ligament or something.

Right....probably Tommy John surgery in his future.
