There's seemingly no end to the misery known as the Phillies 2012 season. Carlos Ruiz, who had crafted an outstanding year and has been the Phillies' unrivaled MVP, will miss 4-to-6 weeks, essentially wiping out the rest of this season and all hope for qualifying among the final offensive leaders. An MRI on Chooch's foot revealed a partial tear, according the team Web site. The Phillies will go with Erik Kratz and Brian Schneider the rest of the way, and are likely to scour the waiver wire for help as well. Hector Luna has been recalled from Triple-A. Just another blow in a long list of terrible breaks for the Phils, as we run out of reasons to tune in for the final two months. For me, Chooch was far and away the top attraction in this trainwreck.
