Colitis is nasty business. Here’s hoping it’s less serious than it often can be. Get well soon, Panda.

Pablo Sandoval remains in a Venezuela hospital since Wednesday: non-specified abdominal pain, ‘tweets’ his brother, Michael. #SFGiants

More details would be nice. Because then we would (a) know if he was really OK; and (b) know if it was so serious that we should not make jokes about it.
