Gardner still feels stiffness in elbow, will try to hit on Monday

Three games, three losses in the minors

Following tonight’s game, Joe Girardi announced that Brett Gardner still feels some stiffness in the strained right elbow that has keep him on the DL for most of the season. It doesn’t sound serious though; Girardi said Gardner will travel to Tampa as planned later this week and try to hit off a tee on Monday. It’s a slight setback.

    Do you have to let it linger?

    Do you have to? Do you have to?

    (I just threw up in my mouth now that that song is in my head)

      Yoooooooou, you know I’m such a foooooool for yoooooooou……

      • Cuso

        Good. I’ve passed the sickness to another.

      Watch out now, take care
      “Beware of the thoughts that linger
      Winding up inside your head
      The hopelessness around you
      In the dead of night
      Beware of sadness

      It can hit you
      It can hurt you
      Make you sore and what is more
      That is not what you are here for”

      Oh, I just picked another song with the word “linger”

    Damn, this sucks. I feel his pain though. I got a slight fracture in my elbow from snowboarding back in February, and it still feels tight when I try to extend it fully. Not saying this has anything to do with Gardner, but elbows are tricky.

      Yeah, elbows do suck…I hyper extended my left elbow as a teenager and didn’t tell anybody about it and it still locks up from time to time.

    Sweet cranberries reference! Maybe he brings a little more to the team than some people think?!

    • Cuso

      Once in a while.

  • Pat D

    I just wish he had let that ball land in front of him…

  • JD

    Cranberries rock! Zombiee…

    Gardners screwed, how can this be a slight setback of no concern when it’s been the problem the entire time ? See ya 2013 dude along w the others …

      Joba, Mo, Gardner et al can join a shuffle-board league down in Tampa and probably kick ass. Extended spring training and September call-ups to run concurrently this season..

  • Joe R

    How do you let him hit off a tee when he still has issues with his elbow? I dont get it at all.
