Most of the Nationals celebrated in Atlanta last night.
“Thanks,” Zimmerman said by phone. “I guess.”
Zimmerman is rehabilitating his torn hamstring, and playing in instructional league games in Viera, Florida while his teammates commemorated the 2014 National League East championship is an annoying necessity.
“It sucks,” he said. “Hopefully, I’m helping us get to the point where we have a few more celebrations like that. But those are not just my teammates, but my friends. It’s hard to see them celebrate and not be there with them. We’ve all devoted so much of our time together.”

Cain is unAbel.
The Giants right-hander will have bone chips in his right elbow removed next Monday in San Francisco. He is expected to be sidelined for about three months, but should be healthy in time for spring training.
“It’s been frustrating for him,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “Matt’s been battling this for a while. It’s time. He could keep trying to push it but it’s inevitable, it looks like. Let’s have this done and get him ready for spring training.”
Cain hasn’t pitched since July 9 and was put on the disabled list July 21. He saw three doctors, all of whom recommended surgery. Cain played catch on Friday to test his elbow one last time but was not optimistic about returning, saying the bone chips were unlikely to shift into a more tolerable position.
Cain will fail to reach 30 starts for the first time as a full-time big leaguer.

PHOENIX (AP) — The Diamondbacks’ dismal season got worse Saturday with the news that All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has a fractured left hand.
Goldschmidt, who finished as the runner-up in the National League MVP voting last season, was hurt when he was hit by a pitch from Ernesto Frieri in the ninth inning of Friday night’s 9-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Diamondbacks have placed Goldschmidt on the 15-day disabled list, and there was no word on how long he is expected to be sidelined.
Well, time to play for that number 1 pick. %$#& !!!

It’s an all-too familiar scenario for many people. You sprain your ankle or twist your knee. If you’re an adult, the initial pain is followed by a long road of recovery, with no promise that the torn ligament or tendon will ever regain its full strength.
That’s because tendon and ligament cells in adults produce little collagen, the fibrous protein that is used to build new tendon and ligament tissue. Physical therapy and surgery help, but for many people, there may always be a nagging reminder of the injury.
But what if doctors could coax an injured tendon to regenerate itself back to its original strength? A solution along these lines may come from an unlikely, feathered source. Berkeley Lab scientists have identified a molecule that guides the formation of tendons and ligaments. And they found it in chicken embryos.
Wade Boggs was ahead of his time.

‘‘It helps explain some of the things that CarGo’s been dealing with and why that finger kept blowing up on him,’’ Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. ‘‘It helps answer some of the questions we had about him.
I can only imagine how Michael Douglas thinks you get this type of cancer.

“I don’t know what to do!” cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoon of himself with his stockings. “I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world! Hallo here! Whoop! Hallo!”

KANSAS CITY—Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura was removed from Monday night’s game with what was described as lateral elbow discomfort.
He will undergo an MRI on Tuesday in an effort to determine the severity of the problem. Any elbow irregularity, of course, is cause for concern, especially in light of the recent increase of Tommy John surgeries.

Carlos could use a few more 5-hour Energy drinks.
Monday appears to be decision day for Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran.
Beltran, currently on the 15-day disabled list with a bone spur in his right elbow,
will reportedly take some test swings on Monday to gauge progress in his recovery.
If pain persists surgery may be required. And the 37-year-old veteran could be out
until late July.
“We’ll kind of keep our fingers cross for Monday and how that goes and go from
there,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “They told us if there was surgery, it would
be eight-to-10 weeks. I’m assuming it’s from the time he has surgery.”
for his generous support.
