I think he will be in there for quite some time.  Not just a routine folluwup.

Given my experience with abdominal surgery and associated nastiness, even given advances in surgical techniques, medicine etc, the body and organs need to recover and regain functionality. IIRC it took me about 2+ weeks of hospital time to be strong enough to get released. Then about 6 weeks to get over most of the effects of surgery.

So, he's pretty much done for the rest of the season, but might make it back into shape for the playoffs?

heh

he may need a few ABs in pawtucket.

As do I.  I would move there if offered a job.
I hated living there, though I always loved visiting it.

My son hated the summers there because they were too hot and hated the winters because they were too cold.  So he moved to San Francisco.  Where it was 100 degrees yesterday.

Sounds great. Less debt! Congrats to all.

Yeah, it was a wonderful CFB win, but do we really have to fall behind 4-0 or 6-1?

And listening to Dave O'B go on and on about how unlikely Josh Smith was as the closer tonight reminded me just how much I miss Don Orsillo, still.

Big Papi's Love Triangle:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7137557/This-Dominican-model-caught-love-triangle-David-Ortiz.html

Cheat in baseball, cheat on wife. Quite the role model.The woman believed to be at the center of the David Ortiz shooting riddle can today be revealed as a curvy Dominican model who flocked to the slugger's side as he fought for his life in the hospital.


DailyMailTV has identified Maria Yeribell Martinez Garcia as the female seen clashing with Big Papi's entourage in a waiting room hours after the failed $8,000 'hit' on the baseball star on June 9 in the Dominican Republic.

A video of the incident circulating on social media shows the busty YouTube beauty vlogger arguing with several other women before being thrown to the floor amid chaotic scenes.

The young mom has not been spotted since, though someone claiming to be Garcia gave a brief phone interview to a Dominican TV station in which she denied any romantic involvement with married Ortiz, 43.

'We are friends, he knows my family and the people are making things much larger,' she said in Spanish. 'His recuperation is what's important right now, not me, not the people in the clinic.'


Ortiz is back in the US and expected to recover after he was shot in the back Sunday night in a crowded patio bar in Santo Domingo's bustling Ensanche Ozama neighborhood.

Dominican model at center of Ortiz 'love triangle'.

Dominican Police say a gang of sicarios - hitmen - stalked Ortiz before shooting him at point blank range to claim 400,000 Dominican Pesos ($7,805) that was offered to gun down the former Red Sox star.

Police have not said who was behind the ‘murder for hire’ plot but three law enforcement sources told DailyMail.com it's believed the organizer was a Dominican drug lord who thought Ortiz was having an affair with his girlfriend.

Garcia has not been accused of any wrongdoing and denies being involved with a mobster, describing the love triangle allegation as 'totally false' in an Instagram post circulated on social media.

Alex Radetsky, a US-based agent for Ortiz, declined to comment on whether his famed client had any sort of relationship with Garcia, romantic or otherwise.

But on Monday, a representative for Ortiz, Leo Lopez denied that the shooting had anything to do with a woman but said it was the act of 'hired' killers.

He said: 'There is no doubt that it was an act of hired killers. If we had known that there was a dangerous situation, he would not have been there at that moment.


Radetsky also declined to address a set of images circulating widely in the Dominican media that appear to show that Ortiz bought Garcia a luxury SUV the day before the shooting.

The documents include a June 8 sales agreement for a Lexus RX that lists Garcia as the owner of the new car. 

A bank check made out by David Americo Ortiz Arias, the ex-player's full name, shows a Bank of America check for $84,500.

The memo on the check is translated to read: 'the vehicle purchase'. The check was dated June 10, the Monday after Ortiz was shot.

DailyMail.com approached the Santo Domingo-based dealership to verify whether the papers were genuine. A saleswoman said she was not able to speak to the media because of the ongoing police investigation.

Garcia has not been named as a suspect, nor a person of interest and there is no suggestion she was in on the murder plot.

Dominican authorities have so far arrested six men over the shooting that also wounded Dominican TV host Jhoel Lopez, who it's believed was struck in the leg once the bullet had exited Ortiz' stomach.

Director of Police Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte told the media on Wednesday afternoon about the murder-for-hire plot. 

He said the botched hit involved a 'gang' of multiple suspects caught on CCTV footage switching between cars and motorbikes as they zoned in on their target.

'This was not a crime committed by two people, this was a group effort,' Almonte told reporters.

Entertainingly, "David Ortiz shooting suspect says baseball legend was not his intended target."

So much for your ongoing bullshit, Piggy.

I didn't make anything up, Joshie. Just keeping you up to date. I don't write the stories.

But I've been right the whole time.

It WAS a hit.

You may STFU.
