Okay, so is the fractured rib from the swing or from getting drilled? I want a reason for the commissioner's office to fry Gibson's ass in molasses.

I'd think it's pretty hard to fracture a rib by swinging a bat.

Looks like my guess that the injury was unrelated to getting hit in the back was about as good as all of my other medical diagnoses.


It seemed a bit fishy to me that McCutchen, who has a long-tenured history of good health, suddenly "pulled something" the day after taking a 95 mph fastball to his back.

It was an awkward sort of swing, so I didn't have too much trouble believing it.

Don't mean to go bragging or anything about my wife . . . . but I will.

As I posted in an earlier thread, she immediately said that it was likely a broken rib. She saw the HBP and the play on which he reacted after the swing.

Chalk one up for the spouse of a Board Member who happens to be a nurse.

Well the original reports came from Ron cook from the ppg, whom I can't stand.

Do the Pirates get to forward the bill to Delgado?

And we all know if Cutch played for the Dodgers or Yankees or Red Sox, Selig would be outraged one of the game's biggest stars got beaned and injured. Pittsburgh? Crickets.

Well, look how much we're talking about Cutch's rib, lats and swings. Look at all the tweets re-posted here. If people "demand" instantaneous "analysis" that's what they're going to get.

Reports per "the fan" and a guest surgeon, former team doctor for the Marlins, reports that the injury is known as a vascular fracture but its more like an oblique strain than a fractured bone based on pain. Basically the 11th rib, a floating rib has a piece of bone pulled away from the rib by tendons. Common amongst young athletes that have extremely conditioned tendon and cartilage. The doctor said the hbp was not a direct result of the injury a day earlier but was probably related because Cutch may have needed shots in his back to relax the soreness from the hbp. Basically causing his swing to be altered slightly.

In a press conference Cutch stated it seemed odd he sustained this injury, the first for him, a day after he was drilled. Also got the feeling he's not a fan of retaliation, can't blame him.

The setup pitch, the slider down and away was dirty and uncalled for.

The doctor said 3 to 4 weeks and its a dangerous injury to not properly treat because a repeat of the injury goes from acute to chronic basically becoming nagging. He said right now its hard for Cutch to breath, cough, sneeze or laugh. Hard to get out of bed.
