I had a crazy dream the other day where Jose Reyes was still a Met and he tore his hamstring and it was going to take a year to heal, but he chose to have his leg amputated and have a new leg 3D printed out so he could play the next day and I was working for a congressman or governor that wanted to stop John McCain who wanted to ban athletes from doing that.

Strange

But it will be interesting many years/decades from now if athletes instead of losing so much time can just cut off their limbs and print new ones to get back on the field sooner.

Screw Tommy John surgery if you can just “print” a whole new arm, or a 37 year old pitcher who lost a few mph of his fastball, just chop off the arm and print an arm equivalent to a 25 year olds and then they can pitch into their 60s throwing 95+mph.

A company called Organovo (ONVO) is already on this quest.
