From Rotoworld:

The Dallas News reports that Ian Kinsler (groin) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Joaquin Arias is reportedly with the team, and Kinsler got an MRI on Monday, neither of which are very good signs. There are reports that he could miss the rest of the season.

That's more than just a heads-up. That's practically insider trading.

I suppose. This is really frustrating news with so little time left on the season and 2nd base being so shallow on talent.

As outstanding as Emilio Bonifacio has been, he's not going to fill a Kinsler-sized hole. Maybe Freddy Sanchez (.372 in the last month) is available in some leagues...

Yes, or Wigginton or Polanco or Kent.

in first place, El Caballo and now Kinsler down for my team. what is it called when your two best fantasy baseball players go down for the last two weeks of the season (besides 'deep depression')?

Lee's replaceable, but Kinsler's at a lot tougher position.

Ian will be sorely missed by Hanley, Mark, and the rest of the guys on my squad after this dramatic breakup. But some the guys on FA are looking for the rebound to have a chance to hop on the train to a championship. Wiggington, Derosa, Alexei Ramirez, Ian Stewart, Polanco, and Howie Kendrick are some of the notables. I was thinking of riding Wiggintons hot streak until he cools down and picking up one of these other guys. Thoughts?

Alexei is more well-rounded and not that far off Kinsler's power/speed combo. Wiggington is also a fine replacement, but you're going to miss some speed.
