Chad, you were clearly paying attention at your video class. Thanks. Well done.
It will surprise me if Jeter’s return is smooth. Cortisone is a temporary pain relieving care. That doesn’t fix what was bothersome. The fact that they gave him an injection tells me the problem was relatively painful and problematic.
Jeter is going to play. It’s going to bother him and I see a lot of ice packs in his future, but its not going to keep him off the field for any length of time. Just as long as he doesn’t re-injure it.
Girardi said Jeter will be on the field tomorrow hitting and doing drills. they will see how he does and figure how when he should play and that the next week or so will determine how they’re going to go forward with him.
He can’t really speculate about when he’ll be ready, they have to see how he responds to the medication, but that what’s he’s going through is normal, just what you have to go through coming back from an injury like this. He will eventually turn the corner, but you don’t really know when. They will continue to talk to trainer, the doctors and Cash, and just keep a close watch on him, watch for signs.
I’ll just tune in and see what he comes up with. I don’t envy the guy, but then again, he’s had a fairly easy job making out most of his lineup during his tenure as manager, hasn’t he? Even last year, he had a core lineup that he fit other pieces around. This year he’s got bupkus right now. Well, Robbie in the 3 hole. Is that a given even?
Doreen, I believe players are always trying to get that little extra, so hopefully they and their advisers and nutritionists are into alternative medicine. After seeing Alex’s natural sups regimen, I’d think most players are aware of the perks of taking omegas/ fish oils and aminos to help with inflammation/tissue and herbs to heal bones.
