[Note by Dex, 04/01/08 9:17 AM EDT ] Just confirmed on ESPN this morning. They were slightly more optimistic, but it looks like we won't see him again till the All-Star Break at best. Mark Prior better get his butt in gear!
According to Fox Sports, the reason Jake got pulled had nothing to do with either his commanding lead or pitch count; apparently he tore his rotator cuff. At best, he'll be back for the stretch run although that is somewhat doubtful. I'm pretty much thinkin' we might be screwed. This just completely makes me sick to my stomach. If anyone needs me, I'll be wandering the earth like Kane in Kung-Fu.
