Rafael Soriano To See Dr. James Andrews

At this point I'm pretty sure the Braves are doing an NBA-style tank job in order to get the first pick in the draft. I sure hope they get Tim Duncan:

Tim Hudson is scheduled to have ligament-transplant elbow surgery with Dr. James Andrews on Friday, but on Thursday, Andrews examined another Braves pitcher. Closer Rafael Soriano, who has been on the DL most of the season with recurring elbow soreness, was scheduled to have another MRI on Friday, this time at Andrews' clinic in Pensacola, Fla.
On the bright side, Soriano gets to take advantage of the the group discount, private entrance, and personal concierge service Dr. Andrews provides especially for Braves' pitchers.

Maybe Andrews is offering a two for one special...if you have one of those card thingies that go on the keychains of all suburban moms

It's a BOGO sale. Buy one MRI, get the second one half off. Buy now, and we'll give you the sling for free.

Also, the Spurs didn't really tank the season to get the number one pick. In fact, it was quite a shock for them to get the number one pick. Remember, the NBA has this weird lottery system. The worst team doesn't always get the number one pick.
