McCann blasted

Az. Eric Byrnes slammed into him on a play at the plate. 1st look is either an ankle or knee. Does look bad. Had to be helped off the field.

Are we seeing a trend here? Last year Johnny Estrada was blown up by Erstad at the plate, now this???

I think we are seeing a trend -- one that's been going on for a hundred years+. Home plate collisions are part of the game.

You should have seen Dave Parker go into Steve Yeager many years ago. Parker, who probably could have played linebacker in the NFL, hit the flat-footed Yeager straight on at full speed. Yeager held the ball ... and was out for two weeks.

And don't forget what Prince Fielder did to Todd Greene a couple of weeks ago. I just kept watching that over and over and was amazed that he didn't get any more hurt than he did.

Well, yes. I was just referring to Johnny Estrada's season-ending injury but now that doesn't seem to be the case for McCann.

Pete Rose running over Ray Fosse in an all-start game back in the early 70's. Fosse was never the same player.

Yep. This one was wrong. And although you gotta admire Pete's hustle generally, this shouldn't have happened in a meaningless All-Star game.
