Doug Brocail has angioplasty

Doug to be sidelined indefinitely.

"Doug pitching again isn't our main concern," Padres general manager Kevin Towers said. "The biggest thing here is that the medical staff saved Doug's life. The key thing is that we caught this early or we could have been dealing with a disaster.

"If he pitches again, it will be a bonus."
Scary stuff, anything that has to do with heart surgery. Let's all hope Doug pulls through OK.
