X Man shelved, Milledge called up

In a craven marketing ploy to exploit a popular movie, the New York Mets have put Xavier Nady on the disabled list after an appendectomy.

Lastings Milledge was called up from Norfolk.

Thanks to Sam DC for the heads up.

This will teach Nady to stop hanging out with Hayden Penn.

I'm not a doctor, but I do have cable TV and I am under the impression that most appendenctomies are done in a less invasive manner now, so the recovery times should be faster.

i was back to work less than a week after mine.

Can you at least get out of heavy lifting for a while?

Bernie Williams had one in spring training a couple of years back. As I recall he was back in action before ST was over and broke camp with the team. I think it's a two-week DL stint and that's that. Didn't Chipper Jones have one recently, or am I making things up now.

Actually I worked with a guy who had appendicitis and he got to keep his appendix. He got a big dose of antibiotics and the infection went away.

I want to keep all of my vestigial organs. I'm quite attached to my prehensile tail.

Prehensile? You mean you can grab things with it? I can see why you're attached to it.

I have an apprehensile tail; it lets me know when something bad is about to happen.

Yes ... many years ago, Bob led his little league team in fielding percentage thanks to that prehensile tail.

(then came that unfortunate "shoplifting" incident) :-)

The prehensile tail of course works in to the whole "X Man" theme.
