The Inquirer's Bob Brookover spoke with Detroit Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge who battled through patellar tendinitis in 2009, a comparable injury to that of Chase Utley. The following line floored me:
Inge said Utley has two options: season-ending surgery or playing through intense pain.
Wow. That really went from nothing to something rather quickly. Anyone want to take a wild guess as to which of those two options Utley would opt for?
