Adam Dunn Emergency Appendectomy

Postby RAmst23 » Wed Apr 06, 2011 9:48 am

Always one to follow the crowd, Adam Dunn went to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy Tuesday night. Per rotoworld:

Dunn had White Sox head trainer Herm Schneider drive him to a Kansas City emergency room following Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Royals. It's a tough break for the big slugger, but similar to Matt Holliday, hopefully he'll be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list. Look for Lastings Milledge to receive more playing time over the next few days with Carlos Quentin potentially moving into the DH-spot.


I know this is an injury update, but since this is a big-time slugger figured it deserved some Leftover attention.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Next year's headlines will be all about the discovery of a new, previously undectable PED that has a side effect of damaging a person's appendix.

You'd better send out a heads up email to the rest of the guys you drafted.
