Remember, folks, baseball players are not like normal people. When they get hurt, we find out all of the embarrassing details as of why.
If you had ruptured your spleen in a freak snow-shoveling accident, it would be known only to you, your doctor and maybe some family members that you would swear to secrecy. But if you are Carl Pavano, then Ken Rosenthal will tell the world about it.
So, really, if you are a ballplayer, be warned that danger lurks everywhere. And if you aren’t a ballplayer, be glad that your stupid injuries aren’t revealed to the world.
