Boston Globe: Abraham: Red Sox reorganize medical department for 2012

Thus narrowly avoiding the scheduled sessions in the Tub O’ Leeches for players wishing to treat an inflamed saltalamacchia by purging of harmful humors…

“There were areas of our players’ physical maintenance and care that we thought could improve from 2011,’’ general manager Ben Cherington said yesterday.

Some of the changes were made quickly, including the removal of Dr. Thomas Gill as medical director. Cherington also looked deeper in an effort to create what he termed “the best possible environment’’ for players.

The Red Sox created two new positions, hiring Mike Boyle as their strength and conditioning consultant and Dan Dyrek as a clinical consultant.

[...]

[Boyle] will be with the team at spring training and at home games while providing “mentorship’’ to new strength coach Pat Sandora and members of the minor league conditioning staff.

Rick Jameyson, who was with the Indians for 20 seasons, was hired as the head athletic trainer. Brad Pearson was promoted from the minor league staff to be his assistant.

We're going to try something new, we're going to put the competent doctors on top, and the morons we've had are demoted.

I am not in a position to know specifically what, if anything, was going wrong behind the scenes. But this shakeup pleases me to the extent that the organization recognized the track record with injuries was just not acceptable and has now taken further action to address it.

Or at least look like they're addressing it.

Better than nothing.

Couldn't get much worse.

Dr. Nick is sad.
