    Not saying it was the wrong thing to do to send Fife back down, but wow, how many teams would LOVE to have him in thier rotation right now? Great to have him for insurance and when the team needs a spot starter.

    So I’m just tuning in. Is there any news on Hanley since his MRI?

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      no MRI

      • http://www.brucesiegel.com/ Bruce Siegel

        None yet? Or they’ve decided it isn’t necessary?

          Looks like they are going to wait a couple days for either Hanley to improve enough to play, or for the swelling to go down to get a better look at the MRI. This has been the Dodgers training staff strategy all year. They never put the guys immediately on the DL, which causes the team to play short. Happened with Kemp, CC, and Mark Ellis earlier.

            Re Aaron Boone: Twenty years ago this summer we were on vacation, spending the night in Billings, Montana. I noticed it was Downtown Business Appreciation Night at the ballpark, so I took my daughter, then 7, while my wife relaxed at the motel. Boone was at third, and I told my daughter that based on his lineage — grandfather Ray Boone, father Bob Boone, brother Bret Boone — I thought he had a good career in front of him.

    Hanley is feeling better, Dodgers want to
    wait on MRI because injecting dye will put him on the shelf for 3 days
    creating more swelling
    .
    the above is copied from tbla; not every MRI requires dye, some people, who may not know what they wrote about, asserted that Hanley would not need dye. Not my field.

    Things like Puig coming to the plate last AB, lifting and twirling a bat in first one hand and then the other like it was no more than a baton, help understand the phenomenon he is.
