Headlines that include the term "second opinion from Dr. James Andrews" usually presage sad, sad headlines. You knew the news wasn't exactly great with Matt Cain if the Giants were willing to trade two prospects for a rental pitcher like Jake Peavy. But you half-expected or hoped that the news wouldn't...
