Details of Alex Rodriguez's operation emerge
Alex Rodriguez is set to have hip surgery on January 16th. We are still trying to figure out why he didn't have surgery earlier so he could be back with the team earlier, but that is besides the point. I guess we just forgot that he probably doesn't give a damn about the team.
Dr. Kelly will be performing the surgery, so what are the chances he comes back strong?
"The big question is, how much cartilage damage is there, and how much unfixable damage is there?" Kelly said Tuesday on a conference call. This basically means that he probably doesn't feel to confident. Kelly's description of the two-hour surgery, which he called "very technically challenging", makes us think that he has no clue what the heck he is doing. I am sure he would have better luck trying football playoff betting than surgery.
The chances of A-Rod coming back and remembering how to play are going to be slim. Will he be a bust again next year?
Dr. Kelly explained a little bit more:
"We can definitely fix two of the three problems, the impingement and the labrum," he said. "But the cartilage is a permanent injury and we won't know how extensive it is until we get in there."
He actually sounds like a mechanic, the more I listen to him. He is covering his basis in case he doesn't know what he is doing, which I believe he doesn't.
So, what do fans think?
"I think he needs to take some steroids." said Harper Cummings a lemonade stand owner. "I don't like player's taking steroids, but I think it is the only way he can return."
Since that fan was a moron, we will have to wait and see what happens.
