    A-Rod to have hip surgery,miss 6-9 weeks

    It's a kind of hybrid surgery. Worse case scenerio, he returns, hustles down to 1st base on a slow roller, tears the heck out of the labrum and is out for the season. Normally I do not wish an injury on any player, but I'm making an exception for Alex. I think of that line from the movie, A Few Good Men. "He had no honor, he had no code and God was watching." Yep, Arod deserves bad Karma.

    A-Rod to have hip surgery,miss 6-9 weeks

    LOL... Half truths and now half a Surgery !! Maybe he should get his cousin to assist Doctor Plillipon ?? This Season has train wreck written all over it !! Couldn't happen to a better organization !! Now it looks like they're desperately trying to sell those luxury seats by getting A-Rod out there one way or the other !! I guess he met the Yankmes "Half Way", No sense doing it one time the right way when you can have surgery twice !! LOL


    GO SOX 2009 !!

    A-Rod to have hip surgery,miss 6-9 weeks

    The Yankees are being totally irresponsible here and they will live to regret this decision. They should sit him out, give him full blown surgery, and get him back to health. Basically now they are commiting to two surgeries, one to alleviate pain followed by a second end of season to solve the problem. They are making, as usual, a short term emotion based decision that is not in the best interest of the player or the organization. It is the intense upset about missing the playoffs 2 years in a row.

    I would probably rather have A-Rod out for the 6-9 weeks and then not be 100% for the rest of the year, with the risk that he may need another surgery should the injury worsen, or definitely a full blown surgery after the season.

    Any yankee fan that brags about the current condition and shape of their team in contrast to the Red Sox team is completely blind. The yankees have 0 depth, which is obvious when Cody Ransom is taking over for A-Rod, and the shallow depth of their starting rotation, while the Red Sox boast about their enormous depth all over the field. Get your facts straight Yankee fans.

    Like the previous poster said, this is the ideal situation for the Sox. A-Rod misses a month or so and then comes back far below 100 percent. Don't know if you know this, but the hips are kind of an important aspect of a hitter's swing. I don't expect huge numbers from A-Rod, and wouldn't be surprised if he was forced to shut it down before the end of the season (Which, if the Yankees make the playoffs, might be a welcomed sign in October for NY fans)

    A-Rod to have hip surgery,miss 6-9 weeks

    It's been confirmed that Aroid will need a 2nd surgery after the season. He will have the first to relieve joint pressure and pain, but I hardly expect him to be at 100 percent for the rest of the season. Much like Mike Lowell, he'll struggle at third and running the bases if the injury flares up....I hope teams test him immediately with bunts down the line.

    As a red sox fan, i'm far more concerened with the health questions of our own starting 9, but i'll take a weakened yankees lineup for a few months as a good thing.

    A few buddies and I are down in Ft Myers blogging about the Sox, check us out at: www.insidethesox.blogspot.com

    The strategy is tremendous depth for both the 25 and 40 man roster, to spread the risk. It is a very shrewd strategy. Very deep starting staff, very deep bullpen, very diverse bench, tremendous minor league pipeline...Smart, smart Theo...

    As usual the Yank fans/trolls are in denial abt their hero. Keep wearing those rose colored glasses and keep thinking that
    A-Fraud will continue to put up big numbers once he returns from surgery. It's all down hill now for this lier and cheat! The roid withdrawal has started and once Nomar went off the roids he had multiple injuries as his body started breaking down. Stick a fork in A-Fraud he's done!

    Don't count me in your "most" Sox fan point. I hope he plays the whole season. There will be no excuses when the Sox have a better season. Just like when the Yanks brought in randy Johnson, You thought the parade down the Canyon of Zeros should have taken place right then. I said bring them on. We all Randy didn't work out too well. I don't wish injury on anyone. So, lace em up and let's go!

    As for the Yankee trolls. They pointed to all the health questions the Sox had. Now they have another one to add to their list (Burnett, Damon, Matsui, Rivera, Posada, and now A-Rod). Plus, A-Rod will be a question mark just as big next season as well (just as Lowell is for us). Wouldn't it be better for the Yankees to put A-Rod under the big knife and do the job properly and perhaps have him see his first game in August some time, and be fine in spring 2010?

    As for we Sox fans, it is probably best that the Yankees have A-Rod in the lineup at 70-75% all year and coming off a second surgery next year! We've all seen teams that pull together and win despite losing one of their big stars. And I'm not sure that Alex has ever carried the Yankees on his back. But him playing with limited range at 3B, reduced power in his swing, and reduced base-running speed is a good thing for us, as Red Sox fans. Quick recovery, Alex!

    Skanks have crap at 7-8-9 and now they don't have a 3b for 2 months....and ok bullpen, an injury prone 2nd, 3rd and 4th starters....and NO 5th starter.

    Hey Einstein, according to the person who, you know, actually performed the surgery, they did do the job properly:


    * * * UPDATE, 12:50 p.m.: Dr. Marc Philippon just did a brief Q&A with the media. A-Rod came through the surgery fine. Get this, before the end of the day the rehab protocol calls for him to ride an exercise bike. He’ll do range of motion exercises through the weekend before they get to muscle-memory exercises. Dr.Philippon said there was “no doubt” they made the right choice.
    He even guaranteed A-Rod would hit in the playoffs and be accepted as a true Yankee.
    OK, that’s not true. But the good doctor seemed convinced that A-Rod will be fine and that the rehab will proceed quickly. So that’s good news for the Yankees.

    Well, baby Einstein. Phillipon has also said off-season surgery is necessary. So, I take that as this arthroscopic surgery is stop-gap (ie., not having done the job right -- my words, of course). When the Drs. in charge propose two surgeries to correct a condition that can be treated with one surgery, the first surgery is NOT doing the job completely. Nor, IMO, is it doing the job porperly.

    But of course you MUST know better than me. You are, after all, such a genius that you had to copy someone else's name. MORON!
