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.
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.
