Bocock's drug of choice -- Viagra

New, comments

San Francisco Giants shortstop Brian Bocock found a wonder drug for treating a circulation disorder in his hand: Viagra.

“The doctors had me on baby aspirin, anti-inflammatories, blood thinners, and, well … Viagra,” Bocock told the San Jose Mercury News. ... “It was a low dose – just 25 milligrams – but I had to take it every day.”

Bocock had a circulatory problem that caused three of his fingers on his right hand to turn blue, so the little blue pill was just the ticket.

“Let’s just put it this way,” Bocock said. “I can’t imagine what 100 milligrams does to you.”

Yes, Bocock is his real last name.
