And we're under way

Woah. Sorry to be away for so long. Much going on.

A quick synopsis:

* Cristian Guzman had an MRI on his right shoulder, and while it showed that the tear of the labrum that kept him out all of last year is healed, he won't be able to go all-out right away. The shot that injects a dye into the shoulder causes him to miss perhaps three days, and then it appears he has some tendinitis in there, which team physician Ben Shaffer described as "normal." Still, it's unclear whether Guzman will be ready to go all-out when the club plays its first game next Friday.

* Ronnie Belliard arrived. He's not talking about that wacky extortion case he was involved in (read my notebook from a few days ago, but to be clear, MLB has determined he's a victim in this one). He may talk about it later. He didn't work out today because he got in late, but should be ready to go tomorrow.

* Manny Acta was totally fired-up about the first workout, in part because most of the position players were in camp early. He described himself as "pumped" and gave the team a speech before they took the field, though he admitted it wasn't going to be crazy, "because we're not a football team." And thank goodness for that.

* Kornheiser went on Post Radio this morning, and already the place feels different. I wish I could get that down in Viera.

All right, sorry to be both late and brief, but I've got tons of stuff to get to here. I'll check in one more time tonight.

It's the first misspelled "whoa" of the season!

If Guzman goes "all-out" this season, does that mean he hits .230?
