    Victorino has played only 30 games this season because of hamstring and back ailments. Dr. Robert Watkins will do the surgery.

    I am not exactly sure what they are fixing, but if its just chronic back pain surgery may or may not help. I have read many studies that showed that surgery is no better than rest in terms of alleviating back pain. Some patients get worse. Hopefully he is ready to go in spring training.

    How do you spell, career over. They have to get active over the Winter Meetings because an outfield of Nava, Victorino, and Cespedes is not going to cut it.

    You have to feel for the guy.  His style of playing all out has taken its toll on his body.

    I wish him a speedy recovery, and hope to see him back healthy for the Sox next year.

    Another cripple.  A back doctor told me when i had disk problems, " if you can get up and walk , dont let them cut you"  If he does come back, I assume he will be even more fragile, as this is not his only physical problem

    Good - get rest and get healthy.  Now we can play some other guys who need the opportunity. 

    Brock to the OF and get Middlebrooks in the line up.

    Middlebrooks needs to play every day for the rest of the year at 3B - they have to find out what they have with that guy.

    Defense.  It is still important.

    The  reason Shane is smiling from his hospital bed is that he gets paid to pay or not to play.  Thank you for your contribution last year, and the 39 million should be sufficient compensation.

    Yeah, he had his back surgery as soon as possible, so he could sit out the whole year.

    Oh wait...

    That's unfair, billge, IMO. His injuries stem from playing  hard. He did all he could do this year, to get back on the field. He said "not playing is killing me". I'm sure he's just thrilled to be undergoing potentially career ending and life altering, back surgery.

    I know he plays hard, but worry about some day laborer with a bad back, not one of these guys.

    I have had a herniated disk for about 35 years.  Rest and ice always do the trick. You are right, if at all possible stay away from surgery!!!  The scar tissue can and does cause more problems than the disk.

    Poor shane, this may be it for him.  I hope not.
