Saturday Funnies: Sveum's quote on Almora's hamate

Like most Cub Fans, I had a mild heart attack when I first heard about Albert Almora's hamate thing.
Anything in the hand or wrist is usually a nightmare and I immediately thought of Derrek Lee.
But I read about Almora and the hamate bone here at TCR, saw the videos, was kinda relieved.
Then I read Dale Sveum's quote and (I never do these shorthands, but here goes) LMAO.
If I'm a passenger and my plane is going down, I want Sveum to be the pilot.
If I'm wearing a Hawks hat in St. Louis I want him next to me.
If I'm a director trying to find the next Bruce Willis, I'd cast Dale Sveum.

I'd get him to write the dialogue, too.

j.baez with 2hr today (only in the 5th)...his 2nd was a -monster- blast (off an offspeed pitch, not a fastball).

4 HRs in his last 5 ABs - the fifth one was a warning track shot.

castro better start taking IF practice at 2nd sometime soon...

Baez should start taking more IF practice at 3b now.

the Sun Times article on the Almora Hamate fx with Sveum quotes...

"Obviously, it's not a career problem, more of a pain-in-the-butt type thing that happens to quite a few hitters over the history of the game,'' manager Dale Sveum said. "It's just that little bone that doesn't mean anything or you don't need.

"It'll cost him eight weeks before he gets in a game. The good thing is it's one of those things you take out and are done with it.
