See! I knew there were some weird ones every now and then. Often might not have been the right word.

Here is one that sent me into a tizzee. Since I own him on more than half my teams, I couldn't stop giggling. :-°

O.K. speaking of odd player notes, can anyone top this one?

Apr 13 FOXSports.com reports San Francisco Giants OF Moises Alou, then with the Chicago Cubs, urinated on his hands in an attempt to heal calluses and blisters.

Wonder if the team doctor suggested this or its just an old home remedy? Perhaps jekin it less would help?

Funny?

Maybe we just need to add some embellishments and exaggerations. Make it more, shall we say, Drudge Reportesque.

BERNARD GILKEY LEAVES GAME IN 7TH INNING AFTER BEING STRUCK BY BALL IN THE HEAD WHILE DISTRACTED BY UFO

PEDRO MARTINEZ EJECTED IN 4TH INNING FOR USING HAIR GREASE ON BALL

JULIO FRANCO AGES 300 YEARS, TURNS TO DUST IN 8TH INNING AFTER DEAL WITH DEVIL EXPIRES; WILL BE PLACED ON 15-DAY DL

An embarassing injury description. Who can blame the guy for not wanting to be out on the mound pitching a tent of all things!!

Apr 13 Filling in for Ramon Ortiz, who is nursing a stiff groin, Belisle will get the starting nod for the Cincinnati Reds in Wednesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
