It seems like MLB's plan to combat the low-scoring run environment is to send destructive nanobots into the bodies of its best pitchers.

ACL in the leg or UCL in the arm (or some other choice)?  How'd it happen?

PFPs were the worst even when you didn't tear an ACL.

yes.  I remembered it was a groundskeeping feature.  The sprinkler comment did not sound right given the era.  The drain hole I think is the right story.

Always amazed me that two of the greatest ballplayers in the history of their sports, Mantle and Larry Bird, more or less played their entire career with a physical injury that suppressed some of the skill they are known for.  Mantle and his speed, Bird and his shooting.  Bird busted his hand playing softball after his NCAA championship game and more or less never had his fingers straight when he played in the NBA.

I don't think it hurt him too much.

I think about Bo Jackson a lot though.  If that guy had told football to go freak off, how many bases would he have stolen?  It boggles the mind.

i heard he made some decent plays in LF.  The P-Nats are trying to get him to play a game with them this season.
