Don't fear the reaper. That's just "renowned" orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews approaching with his scalpel. (As an aside: We challenge you to find a report referencing "Dr. James Andrews" where the adjective "renowned" is not also included. Is this qualifier necessary so as not to confuse the "renowned" Dr. James Andrews with some less famous and just ordinary Dr. James Andrews?)
And so, the news on Drew Storen's elbow is so not good. According to MLB.com's Bill Ladson, Storen felt pain in his right elbow after throwing in a simulated game on Sunday. And now, Storen reportedly has a date with renowned (see, can't help it!) orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion. Here's to hoping it's just bone chips in the elbow and not, you know... *gulp*
"Hopefully it's nothing serious. But it doesn't sound good to me."
