Westbrook out for season
Jake Westbrook has to have elbow surgery. Not just any elbow surgey, but ulnar collateral ligament surgery. It is referred to as "Tommy John surgery." The word on the street is that he will be out for 'just' the season. Of course, the big question is whether or not he'll be back in the Bigs afterward. Above everything, I hope all goes well with "Big Jake's" surgery, and secondmost, I hope he pulls off a full recovery and returns to the Majors wearing a Tribe uniform.
The Indians have been battling pitcher problems throughout the season. Now is not the time for Tribe fans to give up hope! Remember, no matter how you cut it, it is always TRIBE TIME NOW! :-)
