07:58 AM ET 01.08 | Perhaps Alex Rodriguez's hip was in far worse shape than anyone knew. The doctor scheduled to perform the upcoming hip surgery on [Rodriguez] declared the injury had zero to do with steroids, but everything to do with A-Rod's impotent October. In an exclusive interview with The Post, Dr. Bryan Kelly described a patient whose left hip muscles had "just shut down," becoming so weak that A-Rod had trouble doing a simple leg raise during exams. ... [Kelly] stated he had "no doubt" Rodriguez's humiliating playoff meltdown was caused by the injury. "I was more surprised that he was able to play at all with a hip that looked like that," Kelly said. "Most people would not be able to play with a hip function like this and the imaging that looked like his."

Morning... I remember reading that for the Yankees to collect (at least for the 2013 season) he cannot play in any games. Whether that means DLed for the season or not I am not sure. Going beyond that I am not sure of anything.
But I would assume that means he does have to make at least an "honest" attempt at rehabbing himself.

Well, if I never return you might look into the offices of the CT DMV as I have physically lost my license and must now go there to get a replacement. I hate dealing with beauracts. Fare thee well...

Nah. I lost a bet.

It was supposed to be an avatar change for a week, but I decided to leave it up for a month because I probably post less in one month than I did in a day when I made the bet.

I want ChiSoxFag to get his money's worth, you know.

Just goers to show you playing hurt isn't always the thing to do. His inability to hit hurt them in the playoffs, and yes I know, the whole team went in the tank.

Not a chance he retires and walks away from all that money.

sorry Joe, but the yanks made their bed when they inexplicably extended his contract the last time. as a sox fan I owe the yankees mgt a thank you for saving us from both A-Rod and Teixeira.

Yeah, when he opted out of the rest of his contract, I thought the Yanks should walk away. But they gave him more money and more years than anyone else would give him.
