In response to selenium-'s comment:
Every medical staff in baseball would be handling the Ortiz and Napoli situation the same way which is to be ultra-conservative, patient, and cautious. An achilies injury requires extreme patience and caution. Napoli's problem is genetic and one can only hope that the hip decay slows down, not much that anything other that nutrition can do about it.
Uh. Did they really say that the hip problem is genetic? I didn't know that. How many genetic hip injuries are there to athletes young enough to still be playing baseball? Btw, I've never heard the word "genetic" used to describe any other part of the body in sports. I wonder if that's because hip injuries most of the time are from other causes. Are they now going to use "genetic" to clear players of suspicion?
Didn't they originally say ARod's hip injury was "genetic" as well? You know, before the clinic and all? I'm not sure how much MLB is willing to stop the steroid use if they're just going to still cover up for the problem.
