In no particular order:

Ryan O'Malley of the Cubs went on the DL with a forearm strain and Jae Kuk Ryu was called up. Ryu has pitched 2 1/3 innings for the Cubs earlier in the year. They haven't been pretty.

Mike Mussina went on the DL with a groin strain. Brian Bruney takes his place.

David Eckstein went on the DL for St. Louis with an oblique strain. Jose Vizcaino was signed to replace him.

Gustavo Chacin came off the DL and Dustin McGowan was optioned back to Syracuse

Jae Seo of Tampa Bay went on the DL with a groin strain. I hear his groin strain isn't as nice as Mussina's though. Jason Hammel will likely get the call to replace Seo.

The Orioles called up James Hoey from Bowie and sent Chris Britton down.

Is there a nice kind of groin strain?

The Yankees always have nicer groin strains than Tampa Bay.

The phrase "groin strain" has an almost onomatopoeic quality that is both appropriate and disturbing.

I think Bob Guccione had a magazine called Groin Strain in the 70s.

...and of course we had a president who was almost kicked out of office because of a groin strain.

Oh, wait, that was a groin stain. Sorry.
