I Can Haz Cheezburger?

From a Dodgers' press release (yes, I do get those):

The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed outfielder Andruw Jones on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to Sunday) with patellar tendinitis in his left knee, and reinstated infielder Nomar Garciaparra from the 15-day DL. General Manager Ned Colletti made the announcement.

Yeah, I just bet his knee is injured. Seems like they should have put the description of his injury in quotes, since when I read it, I made air quotes in my mind. Whatever it takes to get rid of him, I guess.

I told my girlfriend Andruw Jones was placed on the DL. Her response: "Forever?"

If only.

I had patellar tendinitis in my left knee about two years ago and let me tell you.....it doesn't hurt that much. I couldn't play basketball for about ten days but I could still run and do athletic activities.

I'd say that press release was code for, "Manny is hot and we don't have anywhere to play 'druw"

Absolutely. And now I just hope it means we start playing our best possible outfield, which is Ramirez/Kemp/Ethier.
