Re: Nitkowski hoping stem cells lead to comeback
If people came back from Tommy John surgery throwing a half-dozen no-hitters in a row, I think baseball would have a right to ban it from the game. Or if you pitched well after Tommy John surgery but after about five years your arm had to be amputated. Even if some guys were willing to do that.
If prosthetics and surgery like LASIK return a player to reasonable levels of performance, that should be OK, but if it turns the game into a Bugs Bunny cartoon, baseball has a right to protect itself.
