Last night, while I watched the Yankees play something that loosely resembled baseball, I decided to switch over to the Red Sox & Blue Jays game to see how it was going. It was the 9th inning and who should I see pitching if not Toronto's closer BJ Ryan. For those who don't know, BJ Ryan had Tommy John performed last June and missed the rest of last season. He was activated this season and pitched in his first game on April 13. Since then, he's pitched in 6 games, recording 8 strikeouts in 6 innings, with 3 saves and has yet to allow an earned run. He used to throw in the mid-nineties, but was consistently around 90 mph yesterday. You're probably wondering why this matters. Well I just recalled that we also had a pitcher who had Tommy John performed last June. The only difference is he's not pitching yet. In fact, he's expected to miss the whole season as he recovers from the surgery.
Have you ever misplaced $41.95 million? Must suck.
