Chris Young Just Needs a Hug

Arizona Diamondbacks center fielder Chris Young only two years ago nearly went 30-30 in his rookie season. Instead of building upon that extraordinary debut, Young has seen his average plummet to Mendoza levels and his power and steals dropping off too. So, in the 9th inning of last night’s game one cute fan figured out exactly what it is he needed, a hug! So she did the only rational thing, jumped onto the field and gave him one. Fortunately for her, the security forces were much much nicer than they normally are to a dude who gets on the field and took her away without tackling her.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

It’s a shame when such a cute girl needs to be arrested. Although, handcuffs can be fun…

Albert Pujols is a One-Man Wrecking Crew

In last night’s game against the woeful San Diego Padres, Albert Pujols made it his business to ensure the Padres will remain in last place for the present and seemingly the rest of the season as well. That’s because in the third inning, off #2 starter Chris Young, Pujols hit a sharp liner right back at Young, breaking his nose instantly and knocking him onto his ass. With ace Jake Peavy placed on the DL only yesterday, this does not bode well for the Padres whose sole strength has been their pitching. Pujols however was not finished. Later in the third, while attempting to score from second, he slid into home plate twisting catcher Josh Bard’s ankle awkwardly and he was forced to leave the game as well. Both are likely to go onto the DL today.

After the game Pujols appeared contrite, but the damage was done. Now the Padres are going to be missing their top two pitchers and their starting catcher. For a team who scuffles to ever score any runs and whose pitching must dominate in order for them to have any chance whatsoever, this is not a good sign. Next up for Pujols is the dismantling of the Los Angeles Dodgers, expect Brad Penny to have his arm broken when Pujols rockets one into Penny’s shoulder.
