I don't feel picked on. I just wanted to clear up that the misinformation was mine -- not anything I read from the Twins.
I see that on May 30, Rob Antony said they were going to treat it with anti-inflammatories for the time being but that Pelfrey was to see Dr. Andrews again. "Hopefully, we're getting to the bottom of it with him," Antony said. "We're going to try to treat it with anti-inflammatories, and if he needs surgery, it'll be very minor and just clean up some scar tissue."http://mlb.mlb.com/n...ok_min&c_id=min
So maybe downplaying it a little but anti-inflammatories, a conservative course of treatment, would probably have been the 1st choice before another surgery. By 6/4, they decided the anti-inflammatories weren't working and Pelfrey was scheduld for another visit w/Dr. Andrews.
Pelfrey saw Dr. Andrews yesterday (6/9) at which time they must have scheduled the clean-up surgery for today.
I'm not a big fan of Antony or this front office but I don't think there was any kind of cover-up here.
