Surgery ending Guardado's year
Eddie Guardado is as dogged in his optimism as they come, but he knew something was wrong as soon as he saw Dr. Tim Kremchek's face Wednesday morning.
About an hour earlier, Guardado had undergone an arthrogram on his sore left elbow. In an effort to flesh out any problems an earlier MRI didn't detect, dye was injected into Guardado's elbow and another picture taken.
This one revealed something the previous exam missed: Guardado had torn the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, ending his season.
