View Full Version : Fillice slams Bucs in "Five Up, Five Down"

"III. Pirates' medical staff: For over a year, Pirates doctors told minor league prospect Clayton Hamilton that the pain in his side was due to a strained oblique. But the pain just didn't subside, so a few weeks ago Hamilton asked doctors to perform additional testing. Turns out he actually had a broken rib all along. The hurler is understandably baffled by the false diagnosis: "Unless you were 90 or older, there was no way you couldn't look at an X-ray and tell that the rib was broken," Hamilton told the Beaver County Times. "It was plain as day."

Basically, Buccos doctors flushed a year of Hamilton's career down the toilet with their negligence. Just the latest example of why the Pirates organization could be the worst in major sports."
