Bubba out for the season

Finally got the medical update on Bubba tonight, and it's not good news. He's having surgery on his left shoulder later this week. His season is over.

I kind of saw this coming. He was on the DL for three months, and didn't seem to be improving. And since it's Bubba, you know he's doing everything he can to get better. It just wasn't working.

I don't know where he's having the surgery. Sarasota? Cincinnati? Houston? But if you want to send him a card or something, you can send it care of the Bats:

Bubba Crosby
c/o The Louisville Bats
Louisville Slugger Field
401 East Main Street
Louisville, KY 40202

Poor Bubba. He played only two weeks this entire season (not counting spring training). He's had really rotten luck with injuries the past couple of years.

Hopefully this isn't the end, and someone signs him next year.

Bubba would've played just as well as Andy given everyday playing time.

They've never said what's wrong with his shoulder. I once asked the Bats radio guys if it was a torn rotator cuff, like Wang had his first year. They said no, but I'm not sure they know what they're talking about. They didn't seem to know that the rotator cuff is in the shoulder.

And yes, regular playing time can really make a difference. Girardi was talking about that last night after the game. Look at the difference in Melky Cabrera this year since he started playing every day.

If Bubba doesn't get hurt last year, he is the Yankees CF'er right now.
