You'd think they'd handle it a tad more sensitively? I dunno.

that doesn't make any sense.

you don't diagnose anxiety disorder with blood tests. Maybe it's a thyroid problem?

You can diagnose it with blood tests - though it isn't any more accurate than ordinary methods.

I thought there must have been something wrong with Dontrelle mentally.
Didn't really feel like his decline was physical. :-?

This sounds like Greinke's issue from a few years back.

I'm guessing they had to say it because they had to list some sort of injury to place Willis on the DL.

Quite interesting, maybe Willis can get his stuff fixed and come back and be a strong pitcher again

Him, Vince Young, and Zach Grienke should all hang out.
It would be a nice time to be crazy and awkward together.

I don't think Grienke is gay though :-b

"This is not depression," Willis said Sunday. "This is something totally different. This is something where they saw something in my blood that they didn't like. I'm not crazy, though my teammates might think that I'm crazy." :-°

I thought this was a bit on the insensitive side, but ah well.
