    Felix Pie's "Personal Situation"

    Hardball | ChicagoSports | Blog

    <H1>Cubs' Pie out 3-5 days

    By Paul Sullivan, 3:23 p.m.
    MARYVALE, Ariz. -- Centerfielder Felix Pie will undergo surgery on Monday to correct a personal problem and miss 3-5 days, manager Lou Piniella announced before the Cubs-Brewers game.
    Pie is suffering from what's called testicular torsion, or, in layman's terms, a twisted testicle. It happened early in camp, but Pie had the problem reduced manually, sources said, and was able to continue playing. He was scheduled to have the corrective surgery on the Cubs off-day next Monday, but when Pie reported to camp with soreness Monday, the Cubs decided to get the procedure done today.
    The surgery involves sewing the outer layer of the testicle to the scrotum wall. The Cubs said it was a minor procedure, and if the problem was not corrected soon, Pie would risk losing the testicle.
    It's not known how Pie incurred the injury, but it's not uncommon. Some men are more susceptible to it than others, but it usually happens in late adolescence.
    Piniella delicately called it Pie's "situation" and said it shouldn't keep him from competing for the centerfield job. Pie is leading Sam Fuld, who will get most of the playing time in Pie's absence.
    OK, no tasteless comments please.
    </H1>Dang, that hurts just reading it. Poor guy has to have this out there in the media now too. Why is it that the Cubs can't ever have a "normal" spring training? Last year it was Kerry Wood falling getting out of a hot tub...


    Go Cubs Go!
