This is scary, mostly because of how little information is actually provided. It seems that Mariano Rivera met with surgeons who were supposed to confirm his initial diagnosis and then set a date for his ACL surgery. Except … they didn’t:
“We ran into complications,’’ agent Fernando Cuza told The Post. “I am referring to Dr. Ahmad and [Yankees general manager] Brian Cashman for further information.’’
Neither Cuza nor the Yankees would elaborate on what was discovered when Rivera met with Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad, Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ physician, and David Altchek, the Mets’ doctor, who performed surgery on Rivera’s shoulder after the 2008 season.
I’m hoping that what happened is that they gave him and MRI and confirmed what we’ve all suspected for a long time: that he’s a cyborg, thereby making surgery unnecessary. I worry, however, that that’s not what it is.
