He brought good karma to the team and clubhouse?

Depends on what you mean by karma. Karma doesn't cause injuries. Tripping running to first does

I've never seen one as bad as this one is being is reported.

This is Jake Peavy's lat injury all over again isn't it.

Only thing I can see is David Lee of the Warriors had one in 2013.

This is what it means to be a White Sox fan. This is it, and it just slapped us all right in the fuckin faces.

Brutal. I'm really not a fan of a kid his age being that lean and carrying that much muscle. He looks over-trained for a baseball player. Tearing a hip flexor running out a routine play isn't normal.

Is this somewhere between Peavy and Bo Jackson? 

So are you saying that Eloy could lose some of his power as well?

Don’t see how Sox can win it all with 2/3 of outfield gone.

Apples to oranges. Jackson had a fracture of the femoral head and needed a hip replacement. He was never going to really run again.

The Eloy injury has not impacted them.  Robert will but it's not a 20 game swing.

Rodon and Kopech adding to the staff negates this.  

Go get a guy for CF and go from there. 

Just so I’m understanding correctly, you’re saying the Eloy injury has not impacted the Sox?

Mercedes has more than covered that loss so far. It was the Engel injury on top of that that's killing them.

The problem is outfielders like Robert get hurt. His comp is Griffey and we know that story. His division rival Buxton is always hurt.

Thanks, JR. 

I hope you are happy. 

And you wonder why most of this board was crying for some depth pieces in the off-season. Nobody could have predicted that Robert and Eloy would be out for extended periods of time, but you need to have depth there just in case. Now we'll probably have to overpay for a replacement. 

Being cheap in the short run ends up hurting in the long run.

He's much more Mike Cameron than Griffey Jr. Tbh, if this injury and his physique don't make you question some things, you're in denial.
