Matt Chico's All-Star path became much clearer with the thumb injury to mega-superstar SS Cristian Guzman. Also, Jesus Colome heroically has joined the long line of major league baseball legends with buttocks injuries, as he will go on the 15 day DL with a right lower extremity soft-tissue infection. According to a scoop from Nats blogger and noted buttocks authority Matt B:

Colome's problems with his buttocks is nothing new. He had the same problem during Spring Training and had to miss a few exhibition games, but was eventually able to work around the issue. This time, according to a baseball source, there are complications, and Colome needs surgery to fix the problem.
In his finest big-league campaign to date, Colome is 4-0 with one save and a 2.76 ERA in 40 games with the Nationals.
"I don't feel good. I can't talk," Colome said. "I have to wait until tomorrow. I'm going straight to the doctor."
In great, lucky news, guess who's replacing Jesus Colome?!?!?!
Our leads are safe again! Super!
