Drugs are bad. Mmmm kay.
Haha yeah. Had my first experience with the contrast dye stuff/MRI yesterday. Interesting experience. Didn't really hurt but felt odd, like a burning sensation. Meeting with the doc in a couple hours. I'll keep you guys updated.
Complete labrum tear was the result of the MRI. Appointment tomorrow with the surgeon to discuss details. Still holding out hope surgery is avoidable but it's looking less and less likely at this point.
Good info. I'll let you know how everything goes tomorrow. Hopefully I can escape by doing some physical therapy and be done with it. Who knows, I'd call myself an above average athlete in HS and college but now I couldn't throw a baseball from short to first without feeling like my arm might fall off.
Interesting topic as I'm scheduled for an MRI tomorrow morning on my shoulder. Injury occurred about nine months ago while bench pressing (185). At that time I could handle 250 about 5x so it was kinda fluky that it got hurt in the first place. Cortisone shot six months ago did nothing! Finally went back last week and the doc referred me for the MRI. He thinks the rotator cuff is fine based on some range of motion/strength tests. Said its likely an AC joint impingement or a torn labrum. Fun times getting old! (35). Any suggestions for what's in my future? I'd like to avoid surgery if possible.
Will he throw?
I've heard about three teams competing to move to LA. Are there any other cities that want a NFL football team? Would a place like OKC or Portland be able to support a team? They seem to do quite well with their professional basketball support. London has been discussed too but that seems far fetched to me. Thoughts?

Chicken and waffles... Want to go to there.
I watched him hit #500 in St. Louis! Great memory I'll never forget.
I think he's safe. First season and the team lost one time.
I knew I picked him first in my fantasy keeper league for a reason!
Guess we get to see how we'll look next season for a few quarters.
Cousins. "You like that"!
And now I need one!
Really? Mike Leake wasn't even on the Reds at the end of the year.
I understand being upset about Frasier but Leake signed with the team that offered the best chance to win and the most money.
The Reds did keep a group of core players around. Votto, Phillips, Bruce, Frasier, Chapman, Homer, Leake, Cueto. Resulted in a few post season trips but no championships. Time to start over.
Wonder if it would have only been one game if he he had made direct contact with his face and done significant damage. Broken jaw, concussion, etc. Dude definitely deserves one game if not more. (Perhaps I'm bitter because he was part of the team that destroyed my fantasy playoff hopes)!
Should have hired his HS coach.
