Graffanino Requires a Second Surgery

From the Journal Sentinel:

Bad news for Graffanino: Any faint chance infielder Tony Graffanino had of returning to the Brewers next season went by the boards Monday when a specialist was unable to repair his injured right knee with one procedure.

Graffanino will need another operation in three months to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament, which will take six months to heal. That time frame takes him into the 2008 season, making it highly unlikely any team will sign the 35-year-old infielder this winter as a free agent.

No more Counsellino!  Maybe we can make a new name for Counsell and Dillon.  Dillll?

This is a sucky way to go out for Graffy, though.
