This does not sound good. He needs reconstructive surgery on his elbow.

This is the last thing the Cardinals need.

I love AP, but he's had this coming for 5 years. He (and the Cardinals, and TLR) failed to have his elbow properly repaired back in 2002 when he initially injured it. TLR, in his infinite wisdom, placed him in LEFT FIELD (though he would eventually be moved to 1B, for good). This after being told that Albert was within a fraction of a ligament from being shelved for a looong time. Well, looks like his time is coming. They've pretended the elbow didn't exist, that it would go away. Oops.

Albert's had an amazing career so far. I just hope his insistence to play through injuries doesn't jeopardize what could be an All-time great career. Is that toughness or stupidity?

You're right, but it's just representative of the bonehead decisions that the Cardinals bosses have made the last 2-3 years.

Meanwhile, Pujols played today and hit a homerun.

It wasn't too long ago that they were seemingly among the best-run organizations in baseball. What in the heck happened?

No surprise - he's been playing like this for 5 years. The above article might just be Dr. Patella trying to cover his ass here, especially after years of lacking clarity on Rolen's injuries. And Mulder's. Maybe he should work for the Cubs?

Maybe he secretly does, hence all the bad medical reports for the Cubs' hated rival. He's helping out the Cubs by depleting the Cardinals' roster one star at a time.

Perhaps a night out with Tony LaRussa will ease his pain....

Maybe he wanted to ride out the string knowing that the repair might make it impossible for him to play at the level he was playing at and that he wanted to take some chances at a championship first.

Whoa. Makes you wonder if he should even try to play through this at all this season, considering that the Cards aren't looking like contenders this year.
