Pray for Pujols’ elbow

by on October 13, 2008 · 16 comments

Why, you ask?

Because I just read two statements that make me cringe in the same article about the procedure Albert Pujols had on his elbow today.  The first:

Pujols has elbow surgery

Ok, not terribly surprising – and it sounds like it was a lesser surgery, one intended to minimize down time for El Hombre and maximize his ability to avoid Tommy John surgery going forward.

The second statement?

Paletta performed the surgery, according to the team release.

Puke.  I hope Pujols doesn’t wake up with a baboon heart in his shoulder.

(Ok, I know this isn’t really fair, but I don’t trust George Paletta as far as I can throw him.)

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
