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. [FONT=arial]"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."[/FONT]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.
