Red Sox pitching coach on the shelf

Boston pitching coach Dave Wallace is going to be out for several months because of an infection in his right hip, which was replaced 10 years ago.

While we marvel at how medical science can provide us new joints to keep us moving much better than before, we still are at the mercy of microbes. Barry Bonds's recovery last year was hampered by a staph infection in his knee. Dale Murphy's career was pretty much ended by an infection in his knee. Sportswriter Dick Schaap died in 2001 of postoperative complications from a hip replacement.

I hope for a speedy recovery for Wallace, whom I've always thought to be an excellent pitching coach. Al Nipper will fill in for Wallace.

Bill King died from postoperative hip replacement complications, as well.

Them surgeries are dangerous.

And since Wallace got his hip replacement at a relatively young age (late 40s from reports), he's eventually going to have to get another one because those parts wear out.

My aunt is on her second artificial knee.
