Hooray? Roy Halladay’s Shoulder Surgery “Successful”

The Phillies have told us that Roy Halladay’s surgery yesterday was a smashing success.

Roy had successful shoulder surgery yesterday. He had an arthroscopic evaluation and underwent debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa.

So it was successful in the sense that it happened. And then you remember that the surgery itself is horrible, horrible news.

He’ll begin a progressive rehabilitation program and if all goes well, he may possibly begin a throwing program in 6-8 weeks.”

Potentially. Maybe. We don’t know. I will now refer you to my recent post “Why Roy Halladay is Doomed, In One Stat.”
