Oh, I did not need to see that early in the morning.  Not safe for the squeamish!

I've literally had my hand in someone's stomach. I've gotten fluid from a post op brain surgery on my leg.  None compare to watching a knee bend the wrong way... it's horrific

Well, he had a nice career.

I've done worse to cadavers.

Hes young enough that it may not hurt him that bad, the fact he walked off under his own power with barely a limp may be very encouraging.

See what happens when you watch The Arrival with Charlie Sheen.

I refer you to former Cubs uber prospect Corey Patterson in 2003, who blew out multiple ligaments in a knee stepping on first base and was able to walk back to the dugout without more than a mild limp.

To this day, I have to wonder what would have happened if he hadn't gotten injured. He seemed like he was finally putting everything together when he got hurt. He didn't look the same after he returned.

/Then again, Dusty Baker was his manager...

I thought Dusty's specialty was arms.

He was a 5-tool player, who had a huge upside. That injury happened, and it just wasn't the same guy.  His three true outcomes were homerun, strikeout, pop up to 3rd. So much promise, and he ended his career a .180 hitter for Cincinnati.  ::sad trombone::

There might be no injury that scares me more than the leg injury when running on to 1st base. It always leaves me sick to my stomach, no matter how significant the injury ends up being.

The knee is structurally sound. They put him on the 10 day DL today and will reevaluate after that.

You watching the Braves telecast too?  They just announced slight sprain and I came to post that.

One down, one to go.

I take that as a yes.  Hopefully the rain holds off

I HATE the Braves (Mets fan), but I hope that kid is OK. Too much promise to blow a career that early.

It absolutely blows my mind in all sports why they let hundred thousand to million dollar athletes walk off the field when they're not sure exactly what was injured.  Seems like poor investment protection

Acuña patella. It means "you'll worry" for the rest of your days....

Good thing this wasn't horse racing. Probably would have seen the green tent come out.
