Morning roundup

By jcfortun Published: March 19, 2009

With the off day yesterday, it is a pretty slow news day for the Tribe.

The majority of the stories out there center around Adam Miller and his possibly career-ending finger injury. I would suggest scrolling down to the previous post to catch that one.

Anthony Castrovince did put up an interesting piece about Kerry Wood and Mark Prior. Kind of a then and now piece.


Former Indian Aaron Boone, now with the Houston Astros, will not be able to play baseball this season and possibly never in the MLB again.

Boone is scheduled to undergo open heart surgery for a heart condition involving the aorta and aortic valve. Boone has known about his heart condition since college, but doctors are now saying it is time to do something about it.

If this is it for Boone, his career highlight is one of the more iconic moments in recent baseball history.

In the seventh game of the 2003 ALCS Boone blasted an 11th inning offering by Boston's Tim Wakefield into the New York night to send the Yankees into their last World Series appearance.

USA drops game to Venezuela

With first basemen Kevin Youkilis out with a sprained ankle, Team USA turned to Adam Dunn at first base with disastrous results.

Dunn committed two errors in the 10-6 loss to Venezuela.

Both teams had already advanced to the semifinals.
