    Bravo!

    How great is it that the episode is still remembered all these years later. It aired on Feb 12, 1978.

    I love Gammo and his tweets!

    Gammo's really falling off. "P" is fine for what it is but it's no "wok bm" that's for sure.

    Pretty clear what a "P" from a guy named "Peter" stands for. Can we all agree he's gone the self-inflationary route of Mr. Bill Simmons? If his next tweet is "R IV AC" we'll know he's starting to reference the same 80's boxing flicks too

    Actually, it's a John Gouldens or a Russell Hellmans quote. I can't remember which.

    Actually, Tim I was wrong. I believe it was either Stephan Salami or Bruce Bologna who originally said Gammons' quote. The other two guys glommed onto it and made it there own.

    I think it's damn great that a 66 year old brain aneurysm survivor is tweeting, I'd rather follow Gammons than 90% of the other tweeters out there.

    I'm still trying to figure out if I should get a Twitter account. And if I do, what user name to have. I haven't had a brain aneurysm but I am an alcoholic, and would tweet while drunk. Mostly.. Would you follow me?

    Well, hours ago he tweeted that he was listening to the Fillmore Auditorium concert playlist from '66-'68. So, by now he's stoned out of his mind, and capping off the night by watching reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Taking a shot at 98.5?

    Pretty dumb. 100% of radio people were taking shots, so were 95% of people here.

    Eh, I'm with Gammo there. The "he's soft" camp deserves some ridicule, even if they were the vast majority. A lot of these same people were beginning to turn on Buchholz, until the recent diagnosis.

    Besides, I thought it was a shot at Mazz, who wouldn't shut up about it last year.

    The first names that popped into my head when I read the tweet were Mazz and Gresh. Mazz was on some sort of death march to run Elsbury out of town last year and Gresh flat out called the kid a pussy.

    Both of them deserve large amounts of crow shoved in their faces.

    As much as I would enjoy Gresh and Gammo engaging in a media slapfest, Gammons is wrong. Ellsbury suffered what normally should have been a 4 to 6 week injury and turned it into a season long soap opera. If he just shut up and did his rehab with the team the sports radio crowd would have eventually set their sights on the Sox medical staff. Now whenever someone gets an X-Ray a "front and back" joke is just around the corner.

    I thought that leaving town and going to a sports training center was in fact shutting up and doing his rehab. He only spoke out after it became a shitstorm that he wasn't travelling with the club, where he could do no good at all.

    And that 100% and 95% should all be embarrassed about having done so.

    Let me know how you saw the x-rays and consulted with Ellsbury and the doctors on this one. Surely, you wouldn't say the above based on absolutely no real knowledge of his specific injury, would you?

    I didn't see any X-Rays. Just like I never saw Jed Lowrie's Mono diagnosis. Yet Lowrie, who is routinely injured, took three times as long to come back from Mono as former Bruins Ironman Phil Kessel, in a far less physically demanding sport, got next to no media scrutiny. Why do you think that is?

    Maybe it's because much more was expected of Ellsbury. But maybe it's because we never heard Lowrie bitching in the press about the Sox misdiagnosing his mono as mumps.

    Jacoby already had a rep for being physically soft before this incident. The drama that followed just magnified it and it could have been mitigated if he just kept his mouth shut.

    This "soft" business just seems stupid to me. The charge seems almost always to be framed by journalists and bloggers who assign a criteria of "toughness" to people unfamiliar to them and to which they would never apply to themselves.

    I was baffled by the progression of Ellsbury's season last year. Having broken three ribs myself earlier this year, I must say I am now greatly baffled by the progression of Ellsbury's season last year.

    But my takeaway can only be that the pieces of the story don't fit together, so there must be clarifying information not available to me.

    Another possibility is that there are different levels of severity of 'mono' or 'rib injury' and that recovery patterns vary for medical reasons wholly unrelated to someone's 'guts'

    That is why I ask the basis for making the medical comparisons you are making---it seems incredibly speculative to me to be saying what you are.

    I'd like to see some actual evidence of this. Mazz said there were strong indications of this when Ellsbury was in the minors.

    Any links?
