Put a Fork Him, McPherson is Done

Angel third baseman Dallas McPherson's season is over though an official announcement has not yet been made. The rookie slugger has been hopping doctors faster than Rush Limbaugh in need of a pill fix hoping to procure an opinion from some medical professional that he can indeed continue to play this year and postpone surgery on his bone-spurred and cartilage damaged hip. According to the LA Times, doctors at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado suggested McPherson have surgery immediately to shave down the bone spur and repair the damaged cartilage in D-Mac's bum hip. In their opinion, to play further this season is to runt he risk of further damage. Not wanting to believe the good doctors in Colorado McPherson headed to Tennessee where Titans' team doctor Thomas Byrd seconded the Colorado doctors' opinion.

This is an absolute no-brainer. The Angels have far too big an investment in McPherson to risk losing him beyond 2005. Get the surgery done, start rehab and be ready for Spring Training next March. With a recovery time estimated at three months, D-Mac could even play some winter ball to help him get ready for the Angels '06 campaign.
