Yeah, it's in Roch's latest blog as well. He even said he might soon have to discuss what's best with his family. Sounds like he's just going through the process until there's no process left. Mentioned that the arthritis might be a bigger issue than the surgery. 

Kinda sounds like the piece they did during the off-season.

Mark Trumbo....13.5 million this year  with the absolute best free medical and surgical and rehab care provided in the world....1.5 million guaranteed each of next three years...65.1 million total ...Mark will be just fine.  

If one of us on this board (or the vast majority of Americans) gets sick and can't work....hmmm...good luck.  Maybe we can go on FMLA, no short or long term disability, health insurance doesn't cover the costs, bankruptcy, loss of job without a pension, etc.    

some message in there someplace about our collective values. 

Most people have short term and long term disability through their workplace,

I suspect that the point at which a major league ballplayer complains of a little soreness is the point when most of us would be in the ER for unbearable pain.

I doubt that is true. Probably the opposite. These guys are always injured and are their 20 and their 30s.  I never had an injury that kept me from sports until my 50s and I played a lot more intense sports than baseball.

Not only do we get to pay for Trumbo, we also get to pay for his PRP injections, which have a sketchy record of actually working. I am not exactly sure what Trumbo's injury is, but based on (my admittedly amateur) internet search it seems that at best there is some evidence that PRP injections may provide short term relief of knee osteoarthritis, but not any long-term help. The overall picture  is of lots of demand for, use of, and money being made from PRP based on very little evidence it is actually effective.

Yeah the medical profession isn’t as advanced as they claim to be.  If someone is making money off it they will give it to you whether it works or not.

Yes,but some of the disability payments are as much as half of your salary  Many people cant get by at full salary.

I would get 60 percent and the way they are set up you don't pay taxes on the benefits.  So you would probably end up in decent shape financially.

Well part of that was probably your super human brain power with the ability to mask the pain.    

You are probably right.

Pesky things facts.   30-40 percent of fulltime workers according to Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Well every job i have had in my life has offered both.  Even when I worked at a grocery store I had it.  I kind of doubt the numbers as they even have government workers having very low percentages.

Of course.  It must be the Bureau of Labor Statistics that is wrong..  In Appalachia, where I live, most workers don’t.

    • This is a good breakdown, specifically the barrel rate and the hard hit %.
    • I'm sure that was not the debut Zimmermann wanted to have in his major league debut and of course it's hard to judge guys on one start, particularly the 1st major league starts. I've watched Zimmermann the last two season on video in the minors and then in spring training and I would say the biggest difference today was a lack of command of just about everything and a changeup that wasn't getting much drop at all. Zimmermann doesn't have the pure stuff that an akin has, but his command has been typically better. I noticed this spring that Zimmerman was certainly throwing harder (average around 94-95) in his two inning stints, but his command had fallen off, particularly with his slider. Last night was more of the same as he only threw his slider 3 times in the strikezone but did get his only two WHIFs on the pitch. A concern would be that he got no WHIFs at all on his fastball or change, not one. The change last night was not getting a lot of depth and I've seen more in the past. He did not command it very well and obviously left that one up on the home run. He did not have great command of his fastball though he did a decent job of working the edges of the zone, but missed a lot glove side which could have been nerves or over throwing a bit. He gets above average spin on his fastball but did use it well up in the zone enough and again, got no swings and misses which may mean guys pick him up well. I'd still like to see him get more starts down the stretch to see how it looks. Regardless of the results, congrats to a home town kid making it to the majors. 
    • He's had a lot of soft contact that has brought down that avg exit velocity. He's been a little lucky I guess when you look that his actual BA, SLG, wOBA and wOBACON have all being higher than his expected versions.  His 76.7 percentile spring speed has helped him out as well sometimes. More importantly though, his 8.8% barrel rate and 41.8% hard hit% are over the MLB averages of 6.4% and 34.8%, and I think that's more important than average exit velocity.  His weak % 5.9 (3.4 MLB avg) and Flare/burner% 27.9 (24.3%) are more than MLB avg, so it seems like he hits the ball really hard or flares it, with few inbetween.
    • Sometimes strong guys like Mountcastle will end up with a dink single vs a pop out because they are able to muscle the ball into a hit. Now is it a repeatable skill? That's a good question.
    • I can see the Orioles giving him a day off to make sure he doesn't hit it as well. Might as well give him an opportunity to be a rookie of the year next year, unless the Hays situation this year changed Elias' mind on doing that.
    • Wasn't he RZNJs guy? I can just remember someone always telling me how wrong I was on Hart and then when the guy would get hot for a week or two he would post everyday and act like I was a knucklehead for doubting him. I never liked the workout and a few game cuts I saw of him after he was drafted and then heard awful things about him down in extended by some good evaluators.  Once he had the .586 OPS in Delmarva with a the poor K-B ratio, I was pretty sure he was a dud professionally. 
    • I'm going to nitpick here. I saw a few work out tapes of him and I could not believe he was a second round pick. Other than speed, he had no plus tool and I'll always remember watching him pull ground ball to second base during a BP session one after another.  I never had major league talent, but let me tell you, my BP sessions in high school were typically line drive to left, left center, center, then left center as I tried to hot where pitches were thrown. he made absolutely no adjustments while cameras were on him and scouts were watching him. If I were scouting him, I would have dropped him because of that. Now obviously i didn't get to see a lot of him so I don't know what else he did well, but he was a guy I never thought highly of and a guy i dropped from our Top 30 prospect list when BA still had him #4 in the organization. Let's just say I was an early adopter of him not being a prospect.
