There are three things that are givens in sports – injuries, cheating and blown block/charge calls.  When an athlete gets hurt, specifically when they suffer injuries requiring surgery and long term rehabilitation, they want to forget about it and move on after they are healed.  I have been there, obviously not to the caliber of a Major League pitcher like Daniel Hudson, but to the point of wanting to forget what my elbow felt like before throughout the whole injury/surgery/rehab process. In June of last season, Hudson felt tightness in his elbow and eventually had to leave his start against the Braves.  One MRI later and Hudson was headed for Tommy John surgery and 12 months of rehabilitation.  The right-hander tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing arm.  He isn’t expected back until around the All Star break this season.  When he returns, he won’t want the demons of elbow pain lingering in his head when he takes the mound. But thanks to Topps baseball cards, that memory will never go away. Hudson’s card for the Topps’ 2013 Heritage set features the fifth-year Major Leaguer moments after his elbow popped last June. Luckily for Hudson (and Topps), he has a little sense of humor and revealed it in his (albeit facetious) tweet on Sunday. via Twitter @DHuddy41
