Frank Jobe, inventor of Tommy John surgery, did an AMA on Reddit that was introduced with this bit of text:

Dr. Jobe will be answering questions for an hour starting at 6 EST today in anticipation of Hall of Fame Weekend. We will pass the questions along to him and write out the answers word-for-word. He didn’t think that anyone would have any questions for him and that it’s all been asked and answered already, but he agreed to do it based on the urging of his friends. With respect to patient privacy, AMAA!

It only took one question before someone asked him about the Strasburg Shutdown. Honestly though, that’s some amazing restraint right there. Here’s his answer, and I’m sorry.

Re-open wound, insert salt, rub.
