Had right labrum surgery freshman year in college. Wasn't a fun experience so I'm sorry you have to go through it. Make sure you get are able to sleep sitting up. Probably get a new pillow.

August, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. It just hurts to know that we are the same age and you are so accomplished and awesome. Cheers to you!

August, if it helps you feel better about your shoulder(s), I'm 25 as well, have a 50% tear of the left rotator cuff, fraying of the right rotator cuff, a bulging disc in the cervical spine and a bulging disc at the base of my spine

Devon Travis has been tearing it up for the past month. Is he really a 5 WAR 2B?
august fagerstrom
12:32
could definitely be a 4+ WAR guy

August do you have hypermobility syndrome? I have it and it makes me prone to tears because my "normal" range of motion is pretty wide and I can tear stuff just moving in a range that feels comfortable. Also I do not have thoracic outlet syndrome which is good I guess because I like all of my ribs. Bad because they still don't know what my issue is. I also feel like my body is falling apart

My surgeon told me yesterday that I'm definitely "loose-limbed", so maybe? Weird thing is I've played sports my entire life including damn near 20 years of baseball and I've never had a major injury until recently

Has Wilson Ramos suddenly become good? His improvement doesn't appear to be solely babip-fueled.

Coffee: black? sugary? or get that devil's caffeine outta here?
august fagerstrom
12:34
Wish I liked black but I just can't do it. Touch of creamer and one sugar

Who fields a competitive team first out of the Braves, Rockies, Padres, Reds, or Brewers?
august fagerstrom
12:35
Depends on your definition of competitive
Could argue the Rockies are doing it right now
I like the Braves chances though
Runs Allowed Dickey

Why does a team with World Series aspirations still let me pitch?
august fagerstrom
12:36
other option is Francisco Liriano
and you eat innings to give the bullpen a breather. that's not nothing
and you've been effective in your previous 3 seasons with the club

do you think the Pirates will move Andrew McCutchen this off season, or hope for a bounce back 2017 and move him with the option year left on his current deal?
august fagerstrom
12:37
bounceback

Over/under AA for Tim Tebow?
august fagerstrom
12:37
over/under should be set at 1 professional PA
Bork

But seriously, I am retiring this gimmick. Someone got in before me and did the standard "Hello, Friend!"

instead of going on a run, David Price has been even worse in the second half than he was in the first half. Are we at a point where we assume something's wrong?
