Today's ridiculous baseball injury

I swear, baseball players ...

Are there any people anywhere who find more exotic ways to hurt themselves?

The go-to in this area has always been Vince Coleman getting swallowed up by the automatic tarp roller back in St. Louis. But now, Vince has some company.

Really? Carl Pavano ruptures his spleen while shoveling his driveway in Vermont?

I mean, OK, so he fell down. I've fallen down shoveling snow. So have you. So have a lot of people you know.

Anyone ever rupture his or her spleen doing it?

Nah. Me, either.
