Pujols has bone spurs removed from elbow

Leave a comment

Albert Pujols got some good news while going under the knife this morning, as doctors determined that he does not need ligament reconstruction and instead simply removed bone spurs and chips from his injured right elbow.
There was some concern that Dr. James Andrews would need to do a more extensive operation that could have put Pujols’ status for spring training in question, but he’ll have plenty of time to recover from the removal of spurs and chips.
Pujols has been playing through a torn elbow ligament for years and may still face additional problems in the future, but for now Cardinals fans can breathe a sigh of relief as they wait for El Hombre to receive his third MVP award.

The Yankees Twitter account roasts the Red Sox account on the anniversary of “The Steal”

Today is the 13th anniversary of one of the most exciting and iconic plays in postseason history. On October 17, 2004, the Yankees and the Red Sox faced off in Game 4 of the ALCS. The Yankees had a 3-0 lead in the series and held a 4-3 lead in the bottom of the ninth. The Red Sox were three outs from being eliminated by the Yankees. Again.

Kevin Millar led off the inning facing Mariano Rivera and worked the greatest closer in baseball history for a walk. Terry Francona inserted Dave Roberts as a pinch runner. Everyone in the building knew that Roberts had one job: get to second base and scoring position. Despite everyone knowing it was coming, Roberts swiped second base. He’d come around to score, the Sox won the game in 12 innings, would win the next three and the World Series, completing the greatest comeback in postseason history and ending an 86-year championship drought.

Understandably, the Red Sox wanted to remember that wonderful day today. So they tweeted about it:

The Yankees, however, weren’t gonna let that one go by:
