Casual Friday: In Sickness & In Health

The Yankees are all about the pinstripes, in every sense of the word. The rest of MLB is more casual. This is the latest post in a Friday series called Casual Friday, in which I take a quick look around the rest of Major League Baseball.

* For the second time this season, Dontrelle Willis of the Tigers has been placed on the 15-Day DL because of an anxiety disorder. Does this anxiety disorder really exist? If it does, Willis should have a talk with Zack Greinke of the Royals. You can beat this, D-Train. Zack did.

* Raul Ibanez has also been placed on the DL. The Phillies slugger has a groan problem. Oh, I'm sorry, I meant groin problem. I was confused by all his groaning about steroids lately.

* Does Randy Wolf of the Dodgers have whooping cough? He's been bothered by a persistent cough for six weeks and he thinks that's what it might be. Relax Randy. You probably have allergies.

* Manny Ramirez will be going on a rehab assignment before he returns to the Dodgers. He was suspended for using illegal drugs. Is playing in a minor league game the type of "rehab" Manny needs?

That's all I have this week. A reminder: There will be no LATB Radio this Sunday in observance of Fathers Day. Tune in next Sunday night at 9PM Eastern for the next episode.
