Do they know it's Christmas time at all
To late for a surgery? It was a foot, not a heart. It was never too late for a foot surgery. He was complaining in April that he couldn't chase after his kids. Did he, after being a free agent in October, not see a doctor/trainer until April of the next year despite not being able to run around? I highly doubt it.
At the end of the day, it is pretty simple for me. There is no way that a multi-billion dollar company is keeping on doctors and trainers for over a decade because they aren't good at their jobs. This is athletics, not a car company. The Reds and any other team in baseball is hiring the people that are best qualified to take care of the product.
