Successful surgery for Green
By Ken Gurnick /

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Shawn Green underwent successful arthroscopic surgery to clean up the labrum in the back of his right shoulder Tuesday and is expected to be ready for Spring Training.

Doctors Ralph Gambardella and Frank Jobe performed the 45-minute posterior labral debridement to clear damaged cartilage in the back of Green's shoulder.

Green, 31 next month, had his worst offensive season in 2003 since becoming an every-day player. He hit .280 with 19 homers and 85 RBIs. The home runs and RBI totals were his lowest since 1997 and down considerably from the 42 and 114 from the previous year.

In early September, he confirmed reports that he had been hampered since the start of Spring Training by a sore right shoulder. Nonetheless, Green played in 160 games and the offense, built around his bat, suffered throughout the year.

Green, however, did break Wes Parker's Los Angeles Dodgers record with 49 doubles and became the second Dodger to have 70 extra-base hits in four consecutive seasons. Duke Snider holds the franchise record with five consecutive seasons.

Green has great upside, but I still wouldn't grab him too early in the draft.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
