If laughter really is the best medicine, then A’s pitcher Brandon McCarthy is well on the road to recovery. After emergency brain surgery for a fractured skull. He tweeted this shot from the hospital prior to the start of the NFL season: “the good news in all of this, is that I set up my fantasy lineups beforehand. So there shall be no excuses at this point.” Right… because blaming a bad lineup on your epidural hemorrhage would be a complete cop out, B. Then he went in on his smart phone: for the same reason we all go in on ours: “does autocorrect have a brain injury edition? Jesus this bleep’s impossible.” And when told the Angels put a “get well soon Brandon McCarthy” message on the scoreboard he tweeted, “very nice but sorta bossy?” Very funny and completely awesome. Stay strong, keep tweeting.
