From the Enquirer:

But after Friday’s news about Wilson, that is a long way off. Wilson, who is rehabbing from shoulder surgery, was going to make three more starts at Triple-A Louisville.

When he had a case of shoulder fatigue in spring training, the club shut him down for two weeks.

If that’s the case this time, it’s hard to imagine him coming back until at least the All-Star break.

One thing you won’t get is a timetable for his return.

“I think the worst thing you can do is put a timetable on it,” Narron said.

    Disappointing news. I was hopeful Wilson would come back and give us his usual dead-average pitching. There is some value in that.

    I find it interesting that we spent so much time and money on rehabbing Wilson but sent Dempster packing two years ago.

    Nice catch — and Dempster has become — literally — a “light’s out” closer. I think he has closed 24 straight games now for the Cubs (not sure since I was gone for a week on vacation, but I know he was closing in on their club record for consecutive saves without a BS).

    I have always wondered this as well. Why do we choose to go with some guyys and cut others loose so quickly. The reason this is a big deal is that we don’t seem to get it right too often either.

    I know that Bowden acquired Konerko from the Dodgers in the Jeff Shaw deal and promptly predicted that he would hit 40 HRs every year for ten years. Well, old leatherpants gave Paul Konerko exactly 55 plate appearances with the big club before shipping him down to AAA and then shipping him to the White Sox (for Mike Cameron).

    All the while, we stuck with Sean Casey for years of injuries and DPs and below average hitting at 1B because he was such a nice guy.

    Konerko would look really good right now ahead or behind Dunn in this order.
