When will the bad news end?
Boy, has this been a multi-layered Russian Doll of bad news regarding Barry Bonds' right knee. First, he needs knee surgery on his other leg now, his right leg, after handling his left leg earlier in the off-season. Next, he needs to have it scoped out again because he hurt his leg and no one thought to check if there was further damage. Then he needed it scoped again because an infection has set in and antibiotics are flushed through there. Now, the disease was bad enough to bring in infectious disease experts and put him on IV for two weeks.
No wonder there's been a block on news, it just get worse and worse. I wonder how many more weeks this sets Barry's recovery and return back. This is pretty serious stuff now because (layman speaking) it seems that the question has changed from when he returns to baseball to if he will recover his health and not suffer any permanent damage. Infectious disease can cause havoc to a body, whether athlete or couch potato, and the questions are not as simple any more.
Meanwhile, congrats to the Giants for breaking their losing streak (My Mays t-shirt is now 3-0), winning 3-2 behind Brad Hennessey's great outing, at Mile Hile Stadium, no less, and after giving up 2 runs in the first inning and making it look like it will be another long night. Feliz was the hitting hero today with a homer to tie the game and coming in as the winning run later - he had 3 hits in total. It was his first homer in ages, hopefully he is starting to get out of his hitting slump, the Giants offense can use it.
Looks like the Giants have their answer now as to who will take the 5th spot in the starting rotation since Jerome Williams does not appear near to returning yet and Hennessey now 3-0. And Lowry shouldn't feel too comfortable either, if Williams gets his act together and Lowry continues to struggle, he may find himself swapping with Williams and getting time in AAA to find himself.
