It seems like only a week ago that we were cheering at the thought of third baseman Chad Tracy returning from the disabled list. Tracy has been struggling for most of the season with a knee that has been giving him trouble. The thought was that a little bit of rest would help Chad to heal enough so that he could contribute. On paper that sounded great but in reality it didn’t work out quite that well. The rest did not seem to help and Tracy found himself unable to accomplish the things he wanted to do. Additional tests were run and it became clear that surgery was probably the correct treatment for him to finally get better. So with only 9 games remaining and in the middle of a play-off run Chad Tracy’s season was over.
