Catcher Tom Murphy also has a hairline fracture in his forearm that will keep him out till around the first of May. That's a bigger loss than Desmond.

My biggest worry is that Dahl's injury lingers for a while. I don't know what a "stress reaction" in the ribs is, but it doesn't sound good. If he's not ready to go, the starting left fielder is the useless Gerardo Parra, who was literally the worst position player in the league last year.

How about Parra at 1st base? Hard to believe he started 16 games there last year.

Well done, sir.
