Victor Martinez hurt, could miss 2012 season

The Tigers could be without designated hitter Victor Martinez for the entire 2012 season, after the team announced Tuesday that Martinez suffered a serious injury to his left knee in offseason training.

Martinez will be reevaluated next week by Dr. Richard Steadman, but the team said the initial finding is that he has a torn ACL, and the expectation is that surgery will be required.

The injury is a huge blow to a Tiger team that is a strong favorite to repeat as American League Central champions. Martinez hit .330 and drove in 103 runs in his first year with the Tigers, providing strong protection in the batting order for Miguel Cabrera.

The Tigers originally signed Martinez as a combination catcher and DH, but he became a full-time DH late last season and was expected to fill the same role in 2012. His injury could spur the Tigers to sign one of the remaining DH types on the market. Quite a few remain available, including ex-Tigers Carlos Pena and Johnny Damon, as well as Hideki Matsui.

The Tigers are also among the teams most interested in Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. But even if they sign Cespedes, it's not clear he would be ready to contribute immediately.

WHAT TYPE OF BUISNESS MAN GETS UP AT 10:30 AND THEN GOES RUNNING TO THE COMPUTER TO SEE WHAT SOMEONE HE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HAS TO SAY?????



What sort of business allows it's 'owner' to routinely post for 6-8 hours a day, and often staying up until wee hours of the morning?

TALK ABOUT STAYING IN SCHOOL.HERE IS A MATH QUESTION IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR SOMETHING IN AUGUST AND IT IS NOW JANUARY WOULD THAT BE MORE OR LESS THAN 6 MONTHS.

LESS THAN 6 MONTHS SHOWING HOME SCHOOLING DOES NOT WORK

Brian.  You've been known to have MANY user id's on CBS so you've been around a lot longer then 6 months.

My FAVOURITE post was one of yours, where you quoted exactly what "somebody else" told me, WELL AFTER CBS REMOVED THE POST !

The only person that has access to a post that was removed is the CBS member that posted it.

You are so stupid it's not even funny Brian.

One more time.  What's my i.p address and physical address you hired "geeks" to look up?  And when can I expect you?

LMAO

2 things - First, you said "a year and a half"  which is a lie.  Second, I also pointed out it spanned across screen names, which included your now banned "EAGLES STINK" SN.  So when you take into account everything I said I'm still correct, and you are again cherry picking sentence fragments in a vain attempt to pick fights.




THE IRONWORKERS ARE THE TEAMSTERS BUT SINCE YOU WORK AT MC DONALDS YOU WOULD NOT KNOW THAT


Ironworkers are not Electrical workers - hence the question about IBEW.  (P.S. there IS a specific Ironworkers union - you once said you belonged to them.  Again, you REALLY should take notes about these stories you tell)

I have nothing against Detroit,or their sports teams


The majority of your posts in the last 6 months tell a very different story.


And I guess you can not read,or you enjoy being a LIAR.I have been a member since AUGUST,so I know you are SLOW.But how would that be a year and a half.NEW MATH???????.


"half a year", not "year and a half".  You read it, quoted it even, and still screwed it up.  Stay in school kids, else you could wind up like this guy.


HUSBAND WIFE,OWN A CONSTRUCTION BUISNESS,LITLLE LEAGUE FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL COACH,JETS AND YANKEES SEASON TICKET HOLDER,MEMBER OF IBEW AND THE TEAMSTERS.


IBEW?!?  I thought you were a steel worker?  And what happened to Manhattan construction business, Division 1-A hockey player, and member of the Westies?

I do give you props for standing tall and coming out as a HUSBAND and a WIFE.  Does it hurt ot sit in front of a computer?  Is that why you are angry all the time?

To all tigers fans,

I am not looking to disrespect the Tigers or the fans that actually LIVE in Detroit and root for the Tigers.Redwings


Brian.  You are so pathetic it's not even funny.   Is that YOUR rule?  I live in Canada across the border from Detroit so I'm not allowed to be a Detroit sports fan?  There are Detroit sports fans all over North America, deal with it.

1969 has STALKED me to every Yankee and Jet thread and continues ti act childish calling me names and threating me.
Really? I'm threatening you?  How do you explain a post you sent me a while back Brian?  Here it is....

 

Late fumble helps Lions beat Vikings

December 12, 2011 12:45 amPrivate message to redwings1969

DUDE YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHAT YOU ARE IN FOR.I HAVE BACK UP JUST IN CASE YOU THINK I AM GOING TO LET YOU AMBUSH ME.BUT YOU WIL BE ON A LIQUID DIET FOR AWHILE.WHICH IS GOOD YOU FAT SLOB.AND DUDE YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN NOT HIDE BIENG I'M RICH I HAD SOME NERDS CHECK OUT UR I.P SO I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE

I'm still waiting by the way, the I.P you supposedly have hasn't changed.  See ya soon?  Oh yeah, that's right... you're a pu***.

I am not looking for an an argument with anybody


Now that's funny.  You go into EVERY Detroit sports thread and you've insulted every Detroit sports fan with your crap.  Almost every post you make tells us how long its been since our team won a championship or made the playoffs.  You''ve told us Verlander isn't that good, overrated actually.  You've told us Miggy isn't that great.  You've told us Fister sucks.  You've told us Stafford is nothing special at all.  You've told us Suh is not a very good player.   You've told us the Tigers will never win again.  You've told us the Lions will not win anything.   You've insulted the city of Detroit multiple times.  You've insulted the people of Detroit, telling us how little money they have in a down economy, kicking them while they are down.  

You are a disgrace to not only these boards, but to your family and to society in general.  You are a waste of people's tax dollars, a lonely loser that gets off on insulting EVERYBODY he can get a hold of.  And it's not just Detroit sports fans, you do it with all fan bases.

You are pathetic.
