I hate to shart in people's celebratory ice cream sundaes, but it's the truth. Everybody and their mother, their father, their mother's friends from book club, and their father's buddies from rec league basketball was abuzz today after Joel Sherman penned this piece in The Post quoting Mo's rehab doctor as saying he believed Mo could return to the mound in 2012. I'm not going to bother listing his reasons why, you can find that out for yourself by reading the story, but they seem perfectly reasonable. The reaction to this story around the Yankosphere and associated comments sections was something like this:
I get it. I really do. I worship at the Altar of Mo just as much as anybody. I've probably slurped him in the pages of AB4AR more than any other individual Yankee, and with the number of times I've referred to him as a robot or inhuman, this story should be right up my alley. But to actually expect that he is going to return to pitch in a Yankee uniform this year is just silly.
