Lowell OK After Surgery
It seems that Boston Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell's surgery on his right thumb went well. This is from The Boston Globe's EXTRA BASES, with my thanks. Here you go...
"According to a source, Mike Lowell was found to have a 95-percent tear in the radial collateral ligament in his thumb when Dr. Donald Sheridan operated on him today (Wednesday). The surgery went well, Lowell will return to his home in Florida tomorrow and will need 6-8 weeks of recovery. That will have him ready to resume baseball activities during spring training. What that means in terms of being ready for Opening Day is uncertain."
Knowing Mikey, he'll be ready...if he's not traded. I don't think any MLB team will include him in their plans until he proves in spring training that he's sound, healthy and ready to have a good season. But if that's the case, Theo, WHY TRADE HIM?? If he's right and feeling good, I WANT HIM TO BE OUR GUY AT THIRD. No ifs, ands or buts.
That's my quickie post for this 31st day of December, 2009, the last day of the decade. Wow, did that fly by! I hope you have a wonderful New Years Day weekend, all three days of it. Be careful on the roads and as always, BE WELL.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to one and all! See you next year!
