    Atlanta must have some of the worst doctors in America working for them by your third grade logic.

    If not, then you are probably not qualified to ever have an opinion on anything to do with Major League Baseball, correct?
    Give me a break, the overall point is that without studying medicine, why are you qualified to judge him.
    I'm pretty sure everyone in this forum has played baseball, watched baseball, read about baseball, and studied baseball to some extent. Some people have more background than others and maybe their opinion carries more weight, but there's zero similarity between talking sports and talking medical science.
    You do a disservice to this forum with that type of ignorant attempt at discourse.

Later Madson is quoted as saying it was an injury he had been playing through since the previous season. That's one of many examples of Kremchek -- in the opinion of some Reds' fans -- falling short of his duties.
    Yes, "I" am making it "sound" more complicated, this medical stuff is as easy as 1 - 2 - 3, it shouldn't be that hard if explained in simple terms, like he has a boo boo and is "sore" right there. See how simple it sounds now?

    Anyone want to provide an example if a franchise that handles injuries the right way?

    Why are you being so obtuse in this thread?

    Try out David (Stormy) Weathers; Ryan Dempster; Grant Balfour and a whole bunch of position players. You keep trying to make the point he isn't a good Doctor. So players on other teams trust him because???

    I am willing to bet I have been to far more Doctors than most on this board - not a choice, a necessity. I check out Doctors from as many sources as possible before I let them poke/prod/cut me, and it is naive to the extreme to think Professional athletes would do otherwise.

    Replace if you are tired of making the playoffs. How often did we make it before he came here?

    It is curious that professional sports teams, who deal with millions of dollars in contracts, would opt for inept doctors so they can let them advertise for a fee. It's a shame they don't just hire the good doctors available. MLB trainers and surgeons are really just a yellow pages for quacks. /s

    Well, it seems that it is all of Redszone versus two posters, so let's say the consensus wins this one and Redszone thinks he has done a fine job and close the thread. Sound good?

    I want to jump in for the other side here. Is Tim Kremchek a poor physician? Probably not. Is it fun to pretend he is this guy?:

    Honest question: do teams get second opinions?

    It's fantastic, but I just rewatched The Last Waltz and I just can't see how anything can top it.

    Oh yeah, and the whole kremchek should be fired topic is bonkers.
