I can’t imagine what Phil Hughes is thinking today. Feeling today.  Being today.  He is sitting in a hotel room in St. Louis, waiting to see if he has Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.  His life must be a living hell.  Waiting, wondering, hoping and maybe praying.  Tomorrow he sees the specialist.  Tomorrow he starts the journey to learn his fate. Does he have this circulatory problem?  Will he need surgery to remove a rib? Will this only require some physical therapy?  Will his life follow the path to baseball greatness, will he be able to compete in MLB, and will he end up a high school baseball coach, filled with stories from his few years in the show, and a wish that life had treated him better.  How will he face the possibility of the end?

The news wasn’t so good for Francisco Cervelli today.  It was actually pretty depressing.  Broken bone in his foot.  He has to wear that Ugly, Ugly, Ugly, Ugly, Ugly boot.  Did I mention how Ugly that boot is? It's sandals with socks ugly.  And he is on crutches.  Good thing he worked out all offseason.  Those crutches require massive arm strength.  The one time I needed crutches, I was reduced to slithering across the floor like a slug.  Thank God I wasn’t required to wear that ugly boot though!

Cervelli will spend the rest of spring training in that boot, avoiding baseball activities, drinking lots of milk, downing tums like candy, and trying to heal that bone.  Not the way he planned on spending ST after working all winter
