If you have any doubts about whether or not Braves’ fans care for their players, you need to only look to the outpouring of support that Braves’ reliever Matt Marksberry received and continues to receive since a scary health episode not too long ago that left him in a medically induced coma.

Marksberry suffered a multitude of complications due to medicine he took in preparation for a colonoscopy including severe dehydration and a seizure.

Bowman does a great job in chronicling exactly what happened leading up to Matt’s hospitalization, his subsequent downturn due to shockingly low sodium levels (dehydration is a scary, scary thing), and his continued recovery.

A few important notes from the piece include that the scare did not result from a colonoscopy as it happened the day before, Matt got a cab to the hospital and has no memory from after he got in the cab, and that he is doing much better now and is expected to be able to be in his normal routine by spring training.

This is usually the part where we talk about Matt Marksberry, the baseball player (stats, pitches, etc), but we at Talking Chop are just glad that Matt is okay.
