Affeldt's Blister

Postby ondeckb » Sun Feb 08, 2004 12:58 pm

In today's Kansas City Star it was reported that Affeldt had half a fingernail permanently removed in an effort to solve the blister problem that has plagued him. "The result was pain-free and blister-free throwing in three sessions during the recent minicamp in the Dominican Republic. When a doctor removed half the fingernail, Affeldt said it was discovered that part of the nail was growing down into his skin and causing him to feel a "spike". "When they took that out, it relieved some pressure on my finger and I knew immediately that it was going to work. Now I've been throwing off the mound and playing long toss and I don't feel a thing", he said" Affeldt has an explosive fastball and a sharp dropping curveball....if this has corrected the problem he has the stuff to have an outstanding season......

He could put up some decent numbers if the offense produces like they should.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
