Since there hasn't been an article about #13 yet, I thought I would do some late night venting. And that first statement isn't a jab at the guys of SaH, since there was been such little detail I can't blame them for not being able to post content about the situation. So as a casual reader I thought I would spill some speculation.
So what is going on with Christian Tiffert? The most concrete information I could find from him was on Mayers blog, but that was back on the 8th. What got reported was Tiffert was expected to make it down to Tucson, then to have another post the next day say he was inside practicing recovering from a 'knock'. Since then there has been no status updates concerning this injury.
Either Christian Tiffert is actually rehabbing from something much more serious than a 'knock' and the FO decided to keep that from the public for the time being. Or, there is something much bigger here and is on the verge of rocking the Green and Blue. The last rumor reports have Javier Saviola from Malaga connected with the club, and it makes me wonder if this has to do with a possible Tiffert exit. Another take on this that has crossed my mind is that he and his family just don't like it here, and couldn't make the cultural adjustment. I really, really hope this is not the case because I've been very intrigued with Tiffert and thought he showed well in his first year in the league and had very high hopes coming into '13.
