New "hip" injury
It wasn’t too long ago that Tommy John surgeries came on the baseball scene. It seems as if a new “hip” surgery has now emerged….hip surgery.
Since last season ended, Mike Lowell, Chase Utley, Alex Gordon, Alex Rodriquez and Carlos Delgado have had hip surgery. Now, the first pitcher is headed that way, Brett Myers. He’s seeking a second opinion but all indications are that surgery is needed, either now or later.
Todd Zolecki will keep abreast of all this news on phillies.com.
Ruben Amaro Jr. will be conferring with his staff and Charlie and his staff to determine the direction the team will go if Myers has surgery sooner than later.
Pitching is a premium commodity. The price to obtain quality pitching has always been high. Should the Phillies go the trade route, other clubs know the situation and the price will be even higher. What you will need to give up will be weighed against what you are getting as far as length of contract and salary.
Rest assured the rumor mill will begin churning faster.

That’s the up-to-date tally on the World Series Trophy Tour. It is still going on.
Later next month, the trophy will make a two-day appearance in Cooperstown during a Phillies Weekend at baseball’s Hall of Fame. Looking forward to being there for a fun weekend.
