LOL TOWERS, LOL D-BACKS
"@nickpiecoro: Towers said the #Dbacks didn’t do a physical exam of Gregorius before finalizing the deal to acquire him."
"Nick Piecoro @nickpiecoro
#Dbacks GM Kevin Towers said shortstop Didi Gregorius has a slight strain of UCL in his right elbow in an area that doesn’t require surgery."
UCL strain, no way he'll be ready for Opening Day.
God, Towers is such an abysmal General Manager. I don't even rate Bauer that highly, but my God, he was just sooooo anxious to get rid of him.
I'm genuinely sorry this kid has an injury; you don't want to see anyone hurt.
But, my goodness, to not even do due diligence with your newly-acquired player...
This fits right in line with the decisions Towers has made in the last year or so now. Sheer incompetence.
