Well, they're downplaying its severity, but this can't be good news for A-Rod or the Rangers.
A-Rod has herniated disc in neck (http://espn.go.com/mlb/news/2003/0314/1523633.html)

That giant sucking sound you hear is all of Tom Hicks' cash getting sucked out of his pockets...

I have a herniated disc and am fairly active lifting and running. If you have a sudden movement, it may get aggravated but nothing you can't play through.
Ballplayers use their backs a lot so it could be more of a problem then it is for me. If you have multiple herniated discs, then surgery is required. Hope it is not too bad. God forbid Texas pays ARod for sitting the bench.

I'm sure ARod's contract is insured. If ARod is out for a significant amount of time the Rangers will only have to pay 20% of the contract while the insurance picks up the rest.

I thought I remembered reading at that time that no insurance company would insure that contract.

Of course, I thought that the Rangers had offered Kenny Rogers arbitration, too...

Stupid, stupid, stupid!

in that case TX would only pay about 79 mill to arod this season, right?

i just had a disc fused in my neck...if arod needs surgery , if its only one level and no complications..he could be back as early as 6 weeks..but thats really pushing it...3 months is the norm..

I'm guessing Hicks and the Ranger fans are NOT the kermit doll in that graphic...

I think that was the Juan Gonzalez contract......injury history and whatnot....A-rod has played most of the games he has supposed to played
