Poor kid, he was on fi-yah.


Hm, guess I didn't read the whole thing. I wasn't really aware of him falling ... in any case it is somewhat amusing that he is a professional baseball player, yet has trouble with his groceries.

Some are worse than others, a few summers ago I fell on my shoulder while playing basketball outside and broke my clavical. I had a sling on it for 2 months (beginning of summer to end) so that was basically a useless summer. It didn't really hurt that bad when it happened, but if you move it in some certain directions it can really kill. Like Barmes said on one of the Yahoo! articles just posted, you can hear the clicking around and you're not really sure what happened. I almost needed surgery on mine (woulda sucked) but it ended up mending itself back together.

For everyone that just traded Barmes and is proud enough of themselves that they felt like they need they needed to post it:
Congratulations. You are a true baseball wizard, and your knowledge of the game preceds you. Even the best scouts in the world can't predict a grocery carrying injury, and for this I salute you.

In all seriousness, this sucks, and I'm obviously not happy about it. This guy was headed for the All Star game, Rookie of the Year, and just a great year. He's going to be re-livng the stair incident in his mind for some time now.

He did have a ton of errors so... <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

Yeah I seriously feel really bad for the guy. What a year he was having...and to end it all carrying groceries?! Not the way to go, I tell you.

Exactly. As much as this sucks for my tiny little fantasy team, I can't really imagine how he must feel right now. This year is was a once-in-a-million-lifetimes sort of thing... Imagine leading all rookies in just about every offensive category imaginable like he was, and then having that all disappear because of one stupid missed step doing something as boring and mundane as carrying groceries.

I feel bad for the guy. Maybe he'll come back swinging and have a great career, but a rookie year only happens once... And this was turning out to be one for the books. That fall will probably stay with him forever.

You're a nicer person than I am! I like to think I would have done the same, but I'm not so sure. I probably would have justified accepting on the fact that he should have known as well. Anyway, way to show some class, bro! ;-D
