One of those days...
Overnight the temps dropped from the 80's to the 40's. Supposed to get into the 30's tonight. That could cool off the offense and increases the risk of injury.
On the injury front it's more of the same. Matt Harrison's back surgery seemed to be working. Yesterday the team announced he would be needing a second surgery because his disc herniated again. Looking at an August return now if he makes it back this season at all. Of course with his back appearing to continue to break down, his long-term future now comes into question.
Meanwhile in Triple A Mike Olt is on the sidelines. Olt finally told the club he has been having vision problems. Not sure yet what the problem is but tests are being run.
Ok, time to get things back on track. Jake Peavy for the Palehose tonight and Jason Grimm for the home team. Hopefully this 1996 Leaf Signature Series auto from former Ranger great Rusty Greer will bring the guys some luck.
