Cardinals' Furcal To Have Elbow Surgery

St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Rafael Furcal will undergo reconstructive elbow surgery next week after being examined by Dr. James Andrews. A normal recovery time of six-to-eight months would likely sideline Furcal for all of the 2013 campaign. He suffered a partially torn ligament last August but opted for rest and rehab instead of surgery in the offseason. Furcal tried throwing early in spring training and was shut down this past weekend. He hit .264 with five homers and 49 RBI in 121 games last season.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
