Hamilton update

From the Reds:

"OF Josh Hamilton (sprained right wrist) today was examined in Cincinnati by hand specialist Dr. Andrew Markiewitz, who confirmed the original diagnosis...Hamilton will be examined again in about 10 days…he is eligible to be reinstated the first day of the upcoming homestand."

By the way, he's eligible a week from today, so he's not coming off at the earliest possible date.

I asked Wayne Krivsky if the injury was worse than first thought:

“We’re not doctors. We do what the doctors tell us. He had a appointment with a hand specialist today. He was put in a different type of splint that will immobilize for 10 days, two weeks, then they’ll check it out again.

“We’re being guided by what the experts tell us.

Did you notice the Indians gave Eric Wedge a new contract extension I think it proves it dont take a big name manager to win in the big leagues. The reds could learn something from the Indians give someone enough time and find him better players he will win.
