Felix Pie was scheduled for outpatient surgery

Felix Pie was scheduled for outpatient surgery to correct a case of testicular torsion.

That can't be fun. Pie originally hoped to have the procedure on an off day next week, but he needed it immediately and is expected to miss the next 3-5 days. Sam Fuld and Eric Patterson will play center field.

Sounds minor. I don't think this will hurt him any in winning the CF job.

Paul Sullivan's article:

Quote:
MARYVALE, Ariz. -- Centerfielder Felix Pie will undergo surgery on Monday to correct a personal problem and miss 3-5 days, manager Lou Piniella announced before the Cubs-Brewers game.

Pie is suffering from what's called testicular torsion, or, in layman's terms, a twisted testicle. It happened early in camp, but Pie had the problem reduced manually, sources said, and was able to continue playing. He was scheduled to have the corrective surgery on the Cubs off-day next Monday, but when Pie reported to camp with soreness Monday, the Cubs decided to get the procedure done today.

The surgery involves sewing the outer layer of the testicle to the scrotum wall. The Cubs said it was a minor procedure, and if the problem was not corrected soon, Pie would risk losing the testicle.

It's not known how Pie incurred the injury, but it's not uncommon. Some men are more susceptible to it than others, but it usually happens in late adolescence.

Piniella delicately called it Pie's "situation" and said it shouldn't keep him from competing for the centerfield job. Pie is leading Sam Fuld, who will get most of the playing time in Pie's absence.

OK, no tasteless comments please.
I'm not a guy, but this sounds horrendously painful..... perahps worse than a root canal with no novocaine!

OK, so was anyone else just twisting and turning in their seat like I was when they read that? Man, I can think of a thousand other things I would rather have to do than something like that. YIKES!

My son came home from school and claimed to have a bad day. While we were watching the Cubs and Randy Bush was in the booth talking to Len and Bob about Pie's problem, my 8 year old started to cringe and said "okay, so maybe my day wasn't so bad after all!" I laughed so hard I got the hiccups!
