I wonder what percentage of these silly injuries are legitimately caused by otherwise totally innocuous actions, and what percentage are previously existing injuries merely triggered by innocuous actions.

Left off Jhonny Perralta, who got scratched from the lineup for a day or two in spring training after he ate a bowl of clam chowder and suffered an allergic reaction to the clams.  The weird part is that he already knew that he was allergic to shellfish before he ate it.

Point well taken.  My heart just dropped and thought Clay was headed to the DL before the playoffs.  He best stay away from that damn kid for the next month!

Fark- is baseball not only paint-dryingly boring, but the players get hurt doing things  normal people do everyday.

Hope I don't strain an oblique taking the garbage out tonight.

Not baseball but Santiago Canizares dropped a bottle of aftershave and cut some tendons in his foot. He went from being the 1st string goalie for the Spanish National Team to missing the World Cup to barely playing again for the National team.

What may seem like a minor inconvenience to some is different for a pro athlete because their job requires specialized and unnatural use of a certain part of the body and not sitting at a desk.
