Say it ain't so: Bossman Junior sits tonight

According to the Times Rays blog, Bossman Jr. is not in the starting lineup for tonight's game against the Seattle Mariners.  He says that the injury won't cause him to go to the DL and he'll be available for spot duty.  However, this is still cause for concern for a couple of reasons. Number one, a quad injury (or any leg injury) can linger for a long time. We saw what happened with CC last year. It was like the injury that never ended. 

Next, Bossman's right-handed bat is important against lefties. The Mariners are the 2nd team in a row to adjust their rotation to give the Rays a lefty. His right handed bat is crucial if the Rays are going to figure out a way to beat lefties.  

The final problem is Joe Maddon and the organization. They're going to baby this injury for awhile. I just hope they don't baby it out right out of contention.
