Meet the Super Surgeons
Will Carroll, Sports Injuries lead writer
This list is hardly comprehensive, as there are far more than 10 worthy physicians out there. Teams around baseball (and other sports, since there is a massive crossover) have hard-working and well-qualified medical teams. If I wanted, I could go 20 or 30 deep with this list, but I've always thought the simple top 10 worked best. For now, let's meet this 2014 class of Super Surgeons:

Cincinnati Reds versus Detroit Tigers
Cinergy Field, Cincinnati, OH
From Steven Sharp: Today is the thirteen-year anniversary of the game that continues to make Lance Davis the answer to at least two trivia questions:
Who was the last LHP to throw a complete game for the Reds?
Who was the last rookie pitcher to throw a complete game for Reds?
Answer: Lance Davis  Boxscore
Every other MLB team has had at least FOUR regular-season games completed by a LH starting pitcher more recently than when it was last done by the Reds.  
There have been 564 MLB regular-season games (after July 16, 2001) in which a starting LHP has recorded a complete game. It's also been done 8 times in MLB postseason games since 2001. However, none of those 572 complete games recorded by LHP were tallied for the Reds. 
Total games started by Reds LHP (after July 16, 2001) -- 301. 
Twenty-three different Reds LHP have combined for those 301 total games started. Reds pitchers have thrown 63 complete games since the Davis effort on July 16, 2001, and all 63 of them have been by RH starting pitchers.

Ticket City: Most popular sports teams by state
Between the NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL and the 125 Division 1 FBS schools, there’s no shortage of sports teams to support in this country. While most fans opt to pick a team from each category, here at TicketCity, we wanted to find out which team out of all 247, was the most popular in each state. We decided to use Google to determine which team’s names were searched the most frequently in each state over the last 2 years and here is what we found:
