Fun-loving kicker Jeff Reed recently revealed that he was required to undergo an evaluation after he became involved in an alcohol-related dispute with Pittsburgh police in October.

Donnie Veal of the Pirates will undergo Tommy John surgery on Friday after being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. Naturally, Dr. James Andrews was the diagnosing doctor.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: how wide is the gap between Edwards and the second-best doctor in his field? There's no doctor in Pittsburgh that could've diagnosed this? []

The Pac-10 is prepared to raid the Big 12, and will invite Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Colorado to join their conference, according to Frankly, I'll be glad when all these schools figure out how to divide their millions and we can move on from this tired storyline.

Jonathan Sanchez (3-4, 2.90) battles with Zach Duke (3-5, 5.09) tonight at PNC Park when the San Francisco Giants invade the Burgh for a three-game series.

Sanchez has hit .326 in 13 games since returning to the lineup on May 19 after rehabbing a surgically repaired left shoulder. []

Imagine that. A guy named Veal having a tender arm.

Yo! According to the P-G article on Veal's injury, the team did diagnose that there was "damage" to his elbow. Should Dr. Andrews' diagnosis be considered as contrary to the team's?

I think it is becoming standard procedure to go to Dr. Andrews--not Edwards, BTW--for a second opinion--which, IIRC, is a player's right under the CBA.
