Ryan Howard’s second surgery sounds like it was kinda gross

Ryan Howard

Remember when Ryan Howard had his setback back in February and people talked about it like it was no big thing, infections happen and it’s all good. Well, it may be all good soon, but what they had to do to deal with his setback sounded like a big thing. Or at least a gross thing:

Yesterday, Amaro was on 94 WIP and talked about Howard’s recovery saying, “When he had that infection, that had to debride quite a bit of it out of that area. And when they did that, they had to take actual meat, and muscle out of that area …”

Dave Barry just contacted me psychically and told me that Ryan Howard’s Leg Meat would be an excellent name for a rock band.

(thanks to Pat G. for the heads up)

    cole hamels proceeded to grill and eat howard’s foot filet because that’s what the neanderthals would have done

      Neanderthals owned grills?

    How long until the “RyanHowardsLegMeat” handle appears?

      How long until Old Gator suggests a new take on the “Philly Cheesesteak”? Perhaps Howardmeat & Cheese Whiz™ ? ;-)

        Howardmeat and Velveeta. Geez, get it right.

        @Kevin S.

        I’m fully aware of Profesor Gator’s obsession with Velveeta™ , but every urban anthropologist worth his weight in Goldenberg Peanut Chews® knows that real Philly Cheeseteaks are made with Cheese Whiz™.

        (And at least I remembered to include the trademark symbol.)

        Beg to differ, leerosenthall . . . the BEST cheesesteaks use American and/or provolone cheese (no trademark necessary!).

        Partially concur, badmama – the order is Provolone without. American cheese is a crime against humanity. Cheese whiz gets you sent to the Hague.

    One has to wonder, if muscle was removed, how this is going to affect Howard’s use of the leg!

      He’ll be fine as long as they continue to let him use that stool in the field.

        Dude, this article was disturbing enough without mention of Ryan Howard’s stool.

        I take it you don’t want to see my recommendations for Utley and Thome’s returns, then…
