“Boof”…He’s Gone

boof.jpgDue to partial tears in his labrum and rotator cuff, Twins reliever Boof Bonser will likely miss the entire 2009 season.  While I feel bad for the Boofster, as I know he is such a gamer, I don’t know whether this is a good or bad thing for the Twins’ pitching staff.  Boof is one of those guys who has major-league (stuff)–a live fastball and big breaking curve–but hasn’t been able to adjust after his successful rookie season of 2006.

Last year was so up-and-down for Bonser…one appearance he would look like the second coming of Juan Rincon, while the next he would more closely resemble Terry Mulholland.  Hopefully he can rehab the arm and come back strong.
