Way better than not, right?
I guess Mark DeRosa's heart went wonky every once in awhile - an irregular heartbeat.
The other day when I heard he got carried off the field on a stretcher, I had a pretty irregular heartbeat too.
But the doctors did a procedure called a "radiofrequency catheter ablation".
That sounds like a science fiction VD prevention film from the 50's, but I guess he's supposed to be back to normal by next weekend.
Just to be on the safe side however, lets all keep any Brian Roberts rumors to ourselves, okay?
So, pretty great to read about actual baseball.
Yesterday Fontenot got a couple big hits, Pie got a homer, Theriot and Dempster did well.
Red Sox fan Patrick Reynolds told me Peter Gammons is all ga ga over Kerry Wood - that he's throwing better than he's ever seen.
Today the Cubs lost, but Carlos Zambano looked and felt good.
It's nice, baseball.
Of course, I spent a half hour digging a pathway in the ice to my garage this evening, so we're still a ways off...
But it's nice.
Hey Mark DeRosa!
I wouldn't have done anything remotely jokey about you had I not read you were doing okay.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what you can do when you're not dragged from one position to another all season long.
So heal up, get back out there and take your position.
