C.J. Wilson to get a second opinion

16 Comments

C.J. Wilson said he was going to have season-ending surgery due to a bum elbow. It was a decision that rankled a few of the M.D.s on the Angels roster. But now it seems he’s getting a second opinion on August 11. From Alden Gonzalez:

Wilson is still leaning strongly toward season-ending surgery to remove what he described as eight bone spurs in his left elbow. But he said the Angels have approached him about the possibility of taking a few weeks off, delaying the surgery — one Wilson has had two other times in his career — until the offseason and possibly helping the Angels out of the bullpen in September.

Reading that whole article it sure as heck sounds like this is Wilson humoring the Angels who really want him to pitch through injury despite his earlier comments about not being able to go any more.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
