Why America Loves Ken Griffey

beltreIt took some prodding — not in that way — from manager Don Wakamatsu but Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre finally agreed to wear a cup when he plays in the field. Despite a BLEEDING TESTICLE from taking a grounder off the junk, Beltre still wasn’t convinced that the cup was worthwhile.

“Adrian will wear a cup tonight,” Wakamatsu said before Tuesday’s game.

In a moment of pure comic genius, teammate Ken Griffey Jr. arranged to have Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” play when Adrian strode up to the plate for his first at-bat.

Brilliant.

Two Words You Never Want to Hear: Bleeding Testicle

Beltre14_173801gm-aAdrian Beltre is in his free agent year and his expected contract push was just starting to heat up when his season was tragically derailed. In Wednesday’s game against the White Sox, Beltre took a one-hopper straight into his junk.

Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu after the game told reporters that Beltre is out indefinitely and may require surgery due to BLEEDING inside his testicle.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Terrifying.

Beltre was “walking stiffly with his legs far apart” before yesterday’s game with the Yankees, which he obviously didn’t participate in.

“[The trainers] don’t want him doing anything, just sitting and resting and icing,” Wakamatsu said, “They say if it’s a major surgery it could be at least a month, maybe more, so there’s a chance of that. … It’s healing already, it’s just a matter of whether they’re going to have to go in and fix it surgically. We’ll know shortly.”

Beltre told reporters in 2008 that he doesn’t wear a protective cup when he plays. “I hear that a lot, that I’m crazy, stupid. [The other players] might be right. There is some stupidity to it.”

And now he has a bleeding testicle. Ow. OW OW OW OW OW OW.
