Does that mean he'll be placed on the DL?

The announcer said he will be back in a month! I would assume he would go to the DL. Kind of a strange place for him to end up though. Dont you think?

Very strange given 3B Blake has done well for them.

MLB.com, ESPN.com and Rotoworld have nothing on this. Is this for real?

Bret Boone was up to bat and the announcer said it! I immediately went and looked at all the sites you mentioned and didnt see anything. I thought it was odd and thats why I posted it here!

Yeah I don't doubt you at all, just wondering if those announcers had it accurate since it hasn't been announced yet.

As a Cleveland fan I am very surprised. I don't really see the point, while I don't consider Blake as playing well I expected Shapiro to be fully commited to the process of rebuilding rather then signing a 32-year-old (I believe). Also then pen needs more work then the hitting, the Sox game made me sick. :-t
