Why is the first reaction to Carlisle having back surgery is that the club has done something wrong?
There is hope for Jake. As an elite athlete, I wouldn't be surprised if he does make it back late in the year. Six week rehab and the best sports science and facilities anyone could wish for. As long as a trim of the disc is all that's required, he'll be back bigger and better than ever. It may even extend his career. Imagine if we are in the hunt for finals and a refreshed and fit Jake can be added to the mix.
In the meantime, what a developmental opportunity for Clav, Darragh, Logan and Josh. Suddenly, drafting backmen looks a decent strategy. Don't forget Fish 2.0 either (Wilkie). We'll be ok, methinks.
