  1. This doesn't help Joba any, but it is actually surprising how many significant injuries are related to playing with a trampoline.

    It is unfortunate it happened to Joba. Hopefully he will heal quickly. The one part that I was unclear about was what exactly the surgery actually addressing.

  2. Based on the "open flesh wound" part I would assume it means taking the bone from the outside and putting it back on the inside.

  3. Not a fan of Joba, and it's not like he was gonna do much this year anyways since the 'pen is overcrowded. It sucks for him and I hope that he recovers, but not too bummed out here

  4. If only "No Trampolines" had been one of the Joba Rules.

    I feel terrible for the guy. Thank goodness he didn't bleed to death. I hope he can come back, but a bad break on the leg can be a career-wrecker (Bobby Valentine). Didn't Dizzy Dean's career basically end due to a broken toe and the change in motion that resulted in him hurting his arm? I wish Joba the best, but this is not good.

  5. How about filing this one under "when bad things happen to good peopkle " And pls recalll how Joba's own childhood , abandoned by his mother /raised by his disabled father , might just make him take parenting rather more seriously . And yes trampolines are dangerous but it wasn't too long ago an off season working on the farm was considered good conditioning : visions of C Fisk splitting wood with an AXE ! How dangerous is that!!
