It was only a matter of time

Postby nsulham » Sat May 29, 2010 7:36 pm

Kendry Morales hit a walkoff grand slam in a 5-1 win over the Mariners in 10 innings on Saturday afternoon, but looks to have seriously injured his ankle in the celebration.
Just a shame. Morales took Brandon League deep with one out in the bottom of the tenth inning. He attempted to get some air as he approached the joyous pile of teammates waiting for him at home plate and looks to have seriously hurt his ankle. He had to be carted of the field. Stay tuned for an update on his status, but it's safe to say the Angels and fantasy owners could be without him for a while.


I don't know how many times I've seen these walk-offs and thought when is someone going to tear an ACL or something jumping up and down like that. And now it's happened to a pretty darn good player. Shame.

Jake Peavy broke a rib in one of those pileups, and told nobody. He then got shelled in his next start, which happened to be the postseason, and used it a an excuse. :-t

That was one of the funniest endings to a baseball game I've ever seen. It started with another Brandon League blow up and ended with Morales on the ground in pain as a result of a celebration jump.

Mark Trumbo is the starter in AAA. Has good stats, but isn't considered as a top prospect. I don't think he's ready either. I'm guessing B. Wood.

Maybe they trade for Berkman.

He has a fractured leg and will have surgery tomorrow and is obviously now on the DL. What an idiot thankfully I just traded him in one of the two leagues I owned him in.

Another rumor is that Napoli sees a ton of time at first since he played there over the course of several seasons in the minors.
