  2. From what I know (and I am a CPA, not an doctor of any sort) HQC is a less toxic form of QC, which is why QC is only used when HQC cannot be used. One of the big issues has to do eye issues - can cause irreversible damage. Even with HQC, my wife had to have an eye exam before starting the medication to make sure there were no issues before use and also is checked for changes annually.
  3. Did you actually read the article? Basically only hydroxycholoquine is mentioned as a treatment possibility - in the title because trump mentioned both - assuming he doesn’t know the difference between the side effects of both and that choloquine itself is only used in instances where hydroxycholoquine cannot be used - at least in lupus patients, as that is my only experience as my wife uses hydroxycholoquine for that purpose.
  4. All because I got this card signed at Old County Stadium as a 12 year old. I can remember running back to my dad yelling I got Jeter’s autograph and his confused look asking me, Who?

  6. See positivity people...you can all thank me now 😁 In all honesty though, I hope all these possible remedies are pushed through at a much faster pace in order to calm the fears of this thing taking a toll on our medical system (more than it already has) and treat people at a much faster pace. I think if we do have some sort of treatment option that is available we have a good shot a baseball at some point.
  7. Actually found an nbcnews article on this now - looks like remdesivir clinical trials are already in process here and in China. Looks like everything else is awaiting FDA approval to start.
  8. Got it, well carry on then. Decent read if anyone is looking for some positivity. Doesn’t seem to really be reported on yet, only reason I found it was due to my wife stumbling across it as the same med is used as part of her lupus treatment.
  9. https://www.businessinsider.com/malaria-pill-chloroquine-tested-as-coronavirus-treatment-2020-3 Sorry if this has already been mentioned, but any reason this isn’t being talked about more?
  10. Do we know who they were asking for though? There are multiple sites that still rank Lewis Thorpe at or around a top 10 prospect. Would you really balk at that if reports revealed a high percentage chance Graterol would need surgery. Now if they were asking for Balazovik or possibly even Duran on top...yeah I’m probably siding with people saying Boston was just looking to sweeten a criticized deal.
  11. I am not saying that isn’t the right answer, I am just saying it is entirely possible a more significant issue popped up. That’s all we can talk about right now, is the possibilities, because not one of us knows the facts of what came from Boston’s medical analysis. It is also possible they still wanted him as a reliever thinking the surgery would be put off longer. If I remember correctly Knebel was part of the Gallardo trade fully knowing he had a partially torn ucl. They got 4 solid years out him before that blew up. So maybe they decided they would take the risk of Graterol turning into Henderson Alvarez as long as they were getting another viable starter option in return (look up his shoulder injury - I had the same surgery - haven’t pitched since college about 14 years ago and am still weary about that sh*t after a 15 minute snowball fight with my kids. I still got my location though, mailbox got worked from the length of the driveway 😎). However, not knowing all the facts...I agree, I don’t understand why Boston wanted Graterol as a key piece just knowing the history you can google. Maybe they thought they were getting another “terrible mechanics” starter in the Chris Sale mold and Minnesota said he was perfectly healthy...or maybe they did just look for a way out after the social media backlash....truth is none of us are in those meetings/conversations and don’t know for certain one way or another
  12. Not trying to get into the whole Boston fan/Boston hater argument here....but for me the shoulder impingement is what would scare me and what I am thinking could have come up in the medicals. In my opinion these days shoulder injuries are much more of a concern longevity wise than TJS. An impingement can be all types of different severities...it is entirely possible they got the medicals and there was undisclosed labrum damage. I mean an impingement could be due to a bone spur issue too, but to me if that was the case he would have had that taken care of in the offseason and been back to full strength by spring training. I am just wondering if something came up labrum wise and Boston’s staff determined surgery was imminent in the future. ”If it’s an elbow, call the surgeon...if it’s a shoulder, call the preacher.“
  13. If I’m trading Lockett, I would be looking for more of a sure thing than Gordon.
