Super-utilityman Alfredo Amezega will miss 4-6 weeks with a sprained left knee. He injured the knee while playing for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic. Larry Beinfest doesn't wan't to blame the injury on the WBC, and I agree. The real culprit in the Amezega injury? Austrailia. They've been mad at the Fish ever since they let Graeme Lloyd walk in 2002. I'm sure they had something to do with Alfredo's injury.
Amezega's injury may open up a roster spot for Robert Andino, who is out of options, but more importantly, it will deprive Rich Waltz of a key source of lame puns (Amezega ≈ amazing). We kid because we love, Rich.
