Aaron Hill injured?

For all our sake please tell us tomorrow that Aaron Hill won't miss any time after fouling a pitch off his shin Wednesday night. The Jays took him out for precautionary reasons a couple of innings after the incident, and from looking at the replays, it would seem that he'd be fine.

Still, how can you not hold your breath after this? Especially with Hill on fire to start the campaign. In 36 games, Hill has 9 home runs to go along with 30 RBI's, and is hitting a scorching .352.

There's no way he's going to miss any time, right? If he's gone, we're losing our MVP in the batting order. Joe Inglett would be a decent replacement, but he can't put up near the same numbers as Hill has, or ever will.

Let's hope our starting 2nd basemen will be back in the lineup for the rubber match of this three game tilt against the Yankees. We need him, big time.

That was a close one! When I heard Aaron Hill left the game, I automatically assumed the worst. Thankfully, he's good to go. We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.
