Not sure if it's worthy of a diary, but I am super happy to read this about Jay Payton posted in tomorrow's San Jose Mercury News.
The team apparently won't be losing its hottest hitter, either, as X-rays on the right hand of Jay Payton -- hit flush with a fastball Wednesday -- were negative.
For the rest of the article, click here:
So Payton looks to be okay, now if his hitting can just become contagious as later in the article they point out just how bad some of these guys have been lately.
But that still doesn't solve the problem of Bobby Crosby (.229, one homer since May 31), Nick Swisher (.200, six homers over the same stretch) or Mark Ellis (.216 overall).
Well good news for Jay, and let's get hot in time for a solid post season run!
