Ryan Madson will have Tommy John Surgery, out for 2012

There’s a pretty good chance that this picture above is the only glimpse you’re ever going to get of Ryan Madson in a Cincinnati Reds jersey–one of those snazzy official home whites, at least.

That’s because yesterday it was announced that Madson would have Tommy John Surgery and miss the entire 2012 season. To say the least, things weren’t all sound inside that right arm of his.

You can’t miss something you never had. So while I was initially sick at this news, I’m trying to focus on the positives like Marshall, Arredondo, Chapman, Masset, and Bray. And I want to pretend that Madson never happened and was never even one of ‘us’ to begin with.
