Emo Away; Uribe Not Joining The 10-Game Road Trip

More emotional thoughts must be brewing from injured .204 hitter Juan Uribe, who isn't on the Dodgers' road trip that starts tonight in Milwaukee:

LOS ANGELES -- Juan Uribe will not make the Dodgers' upcoming 10-game road trip, which starts on Monday against the Brewers, as the injured infielder will stay behind and likely undergo tests on his injured left hip.

Uribe, who has been on the disabled list since July 24, was expected to be ready to return as soon as his 15 days were up. But the injury hasn't progressed as planned, manager Don Mattingly said on Saturday.

"I don't know if there's a setback," Mattingly said. "It's just that he's not really healing. So it kind of put up some red flags that we've got to look a little deeper into it."

I am not volunteering for the team that's looking deeper into Uribe's girth. However, I do mourn the lost bratwurst sales at Miller Park over this three-game series.

When Don Mattingly was asked for an update on Juan Uribe's status on the DL he responded, "Who cares?"
