Ronny Paulino shut down

I realize Ronny Paulino isn't with the Marlins anymore, but I hope he is well

...general manager Sandy Alderson announced that catcher Ronny Paulino had been shut down indefinitely because of a worrisome blood test earlier this month.

---

Alderson explained that Paulino's blood work, taken as part of his physical, showed irregularities that had to be followed up with more tests Friday. Those results won't be known until early this week, so the team's medical staff advised Paulino to remain sidelined until then.

"I'm pretty worried about his health," Collins said.

"It has nothing to do with any of the other issues," Alderson said. "It just has to do with blood counts and things of that sort."

Hopefully, it isn't serious. But the Mets are worried. I like Paulino and only wish him well. He will not open the season on the Mets 25-man roster. With any luck, this will turnout to be next nothing and he will be good to go soon. Or at least I hope so.

I must admit I will miss him pounding on his chest and yelling at Leo: "Look at me."
