Doctor: We’re ready to put you under now. Just relax and breathe normally; begin counting down from 100 and you’ll just got to sleep. When you wake up, your elbow will be as good as new Mr. Mejia.
The patient begins to squirm and act panicky; nurses and orderlies are called to hold him down; restraining his large frame on the table, just before he falls into unconsciousness due to the anesthesia, he manages to utter the words, “I’m not Mejia, I’m Young!! Shoulder!!! Shoulder!!!”
The doctor peers down at the 6’10” frame and pale skin of Chris Young, shakes his head and says, “Athletes are the biggest babies. Now, let’s fix this young man’s elbow!”
Sound farfetched? Maybe. But it is the Mets we’re talking about. All things are possible. All….things.
