Ugh, this Devon Travis thing.
There’s really nothing worth saying about this other than variations on ughhhhhhhh so I’m just going to go ahead and throw some quotes your way. They’re from Ross Atkins, speaking only about the Travis situation, in a clip from this afternoon at TSN.ca. They’re not particularly fun!
Usually these procedures are a couple of months, or into three and four months. So, on the low side, probably three month. And we’ll see — there’s nothing concrete about it, we’re still learning about it. We’re hopeful that we could see him again, but certainly don’t want to put anything concrete out there about this year.
We were actually pleasantly surprised. With everything that we had learned, you know, it’s less speculation than it is projecting medical opinions and piecing things together. The more we learned and the more information we got, the better it got for us.
Hey, so… does that seem like good news at the end? I’m not even sure, because the question is cut off in the clip, so I have no idea what precisely he’s responding to — go over and watch it at TSN if you don’t believe me; in fact, do that anyway, because I’m sure as hell not offering much original analysis over here while I steal their clicks. Y’know, besides UGHHHHH.
Hey, and speaking of ugh: Three months on the low side! Refuses to say we’ll even see him again this season!
