Broxton's Elbow OK; Fans Strangely Not Reassured

The LATimes' Steve Dilbeck reports that Jonathan Broxton's elbow, which had an MRI Wednesday after Broxton suddenly complained of stiffness, is just fine:

Turns out an MRI on Jonathan Broxton’s right elbow Wednesday showed no structural damage, his agent told The Times’ Dylan Hernandez.

Agent B.B. Abbott said a bone spur was identified, and there is a bruise at the back of the elbow.

But Abbott told Hernandez there was nothing serious that requires surgery.

Well, that's settled then! I'm sure everything is ducky.

Instead of an MRI, perhaps a CAT scan of the brain would be more appropriate. But then, can you identify lack of confidence with one of those?

Brox is young and bullish. He needs to look around and learn from some of the best closers in the game. You cannont live by the fastball alone.

LANDO: This deal's getting worse all the time.

So...he just sucks? That's a bummer.

Diagnosis: dreadful


@RBN

Especially if the fastball isn't as fast as it once was.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Well. That clears it all up for me.

Especially if his fastball has NO MOVEMENT WHATSOEVER.

Broxton should learn how to throw the Chente Soap Bubble. It would be awesome to see a guy that big throw a pitch that slow! And it might make his fastball look a lot faster to batters.

Boooooooooooooooooo!

But now he's on the DL. HUH?

"It's time for confusing baseball!"

MR.F said...

He's mentally disabled.

Mr. Customer said...

Remain calm! All is well!

Heading to New Shea tonight with my dad. He will be happy if we won't see Broxton this weekend

He is also convinced we will end Ethier's streak tonight and I am inclined to agree with him. Nothing seems to go right when we see the Dodgers in person. Starting with the Dodgers-Mets game in 86 where Tom Niedenfuer plunked Ray Night after a George Foster grand slam inciting 2 brawls. The notable exception is the Lima-Time playoff game. But that was trounced the next day.

I'm on the BL. Buffet line

Good thoughts on Brox's (lack of a )fastball.

If he could just hit the ball, then we turn him into the next Rick Ankiel.

Neeebs said...

^or the next Ric Flair.

I remember listening to Brox during the off season and he stated nothing was wrong last year and no adjustments were needed.

I knew then he was screwed. I was hopeful Jansen could step up. That didn't work.
