The Award for Best Spring Training Injury Goes To...
Erik Bedard of the Seattle Mariners who missed his scheduled start on Wednesday due to a bum bum, a gimpy glute, a tender tuchus, a roasted rump or as the Seattle Post-Intelligencer more delicately put it, "a muscle strain in his buttocks."
The Baltimore Sun was a bit more blunt in its AP headline: Bedard Scratched From Start Due to Sore Butt.
All and all, a nice bit of sophomoric humor during the spring training doldrums. Sadly it lacks the kind of ridiculous quote that ousted Nationals general manager Jim Bowden gave while discussing an infection in reliever Jesus Colome's backside in 2007:
"It's a serious situation," Bowden said. "We pray for his buttocks and his family."
Well said Jim, well said.
