geez, the kid is a natural CF. understand wanting to give judge half a night off and all, but put fowler in a position to succeed and play him in CF and DH ellsbury.

Whether it's CF, LF, or difference. The player basically just stands there, runs, catches, and throws the ball. mean to tell me, that Dustin Fowler's success is dependent on where he plays the outfield? That's like saying my performance at work is effected by which side of the bed I sleep in, the night before.

If you really are THAT concerned, when Fowler comes back, why don't you reserve him a room at the Holiday Inn, the night before a game. I hear people up their game after a night's stay.

Look, this is a different Yankee team and organization now. Because of Bird, Sanchez, and Judge the kids are being handled differently. Fowler worked very hard to be a Yankee and the Yankees know that. They'll give him every opportunity to become permanent.

There is no need to over-complex the situation. Let the Professionals handle it.

this is a throwback thread if I ever saw one!  Phil Hughes made his debut in '07 - he was throwing a no hitter into the 6th and then tore his hamstring.  One poster here figured he'd blame the injury on the Yankee front office and Torre because Hughes "wasn't ready"!!!!  you can't make this stuff up Suzyn!

honestly Joe Girardi is the manager of the year with all the sh!t he has had to endure...

What is a ruptured patella tendon? 

Patella tendon ruptures are extremely painful and may be accompanied with an audible 'pop' at the time of injury. There will be swelling of the knee, particularly at the bottom of the knee over the tendon. The athlete will be unable to put weight on the knee or hold the knee in a straightened position. 

What happens?

The patella tendon is prone to rupturing in individuals with a history of patella tendon injury such as jumpers knee or degeneration due to age. Injuries of this type serve to weaken the patella tendon and in the event of strong eccentric quadriceps contraction which is where the muscle contracts while it lengthens such as landing from jump, the patella tendon may snap or rupture most commonly at the lower end of the patella.

What is the treatment?

If the patella tendon becomes completely ruptured across its width and thus surgical intervention is required to repair the damage. This involves suturing (stitching) the torn tendon.

Following surgery the patient will be advised on a specific rehabilitation plan which normally involves little or no weight-bearing on the affected knee and wearing a knee brace to prevent the knee from bending. This may be required for more than 6 weeks.

Once the knee brace has been removed exercises to regain full range of movement and build up the strength of the quadriceps muscle group should be carried out.

Rehabilitation from a patella tendon rupture is extremely slow and it may take between 6 and 12 months before the patient is able to return to sports.

They said last night the same injury Victor Cruz had. The good thing is football is a different game. Lose a step there you can be done. Baseball not the hard contact football has.Hopefully we see him back in ST with Torres.

That injury is in no way Joe's fault. Fowler has played all over the outfield. Form my understanding, theres an electrical box thats not protected on that wall and Fowler hit it, which caused the injury...
