Ouch. My mother was literally doubled over on the floor at some points when she was passing her kidney stones.

I can't imagine even standing upright if I had kidney stones.

Remember when Jenks had them?

Olivo had kidney stones when we traded him to Seattle in 2004. Looks like he has a genetic predisposition to them, poor guy.

Oh my god I near passed out just reading that!

He may be an ass, but damn, that's toughness right there.

I've never had one (and pray to God that I never do), but I've heard that people can't even stand during the passing of a stone, much less play a professional-level sport. God only knows how much pain he had to be in.

I tip my hat to you, Miguel. That's impressive.

Have always really liked Miguel...wish he was still a Sox.

He is clearly a beast out there...tougher than a bucket of nails.

Did he call for time?

I always liked Miguel, too, but we can at least now look back on that trade and say we got the best of it, right?

Before you can make an omellette, you have to crack a few eggs.

Really though, in the KW era, Olivo is one of the few younger guys we've traded away that became a decent MLB regular, right? I guess Jon Rauch has had a nice little career in the bullpen, though that is a disappointment from where he was when he was still a top SP prospect and Kip Wells had a few OK years in Pittsburgh, but Olivo might be the #1 player we've traded from our system in the past 10 years.

Maybe Carlos Lee, before Miguel, no?

The one time when I had kidney stones, I was barely able to stand. Passing them was equally as fun.

To keep playing in an MLB game is a heck of an accomplishment.

Not to say he's not tough but no two kidney stones are the same. My Dad has been put in the hospital by some and he's passed some at work and continues to work.
