This is NOT a joke!

Player Hurt in Pillow Accident

We've heard about players getting hurt while sneezing, while sleepwalking through a nightmare about spiders and after kicking an iron bar stool.

But we had never heard of a pillow-lifting injury in baseball — that is, until Detroit Tigers' everyman Brandon Inge reported an overstuffed owie on Wednesday, earning a feather-paved (and probably overdue) path to the injury list.

The details, from the Free Press:

"It was the stupidest, most freakish thing," Inge said Wednesday, explaining why he had just been placed on the 15-day DL with the pulled side muscle (oblique) he suffered 3 1/2 weeks ago.

"I have a 3-year-old son who sleeps in the bed with my wife and me," Inge said. "I was trying to push the pillow down behind his head (two nights ago), and when I did ... I repopped (the strained muscle).

"You take swings in baseball, and it's not as bad as pushing a pillow down."

Upon hearing this story, manager Jim Leyland said, "That's a first."

It definitely is a first, but I think anyone who's getting up there in age — like myself and Mr. Inge — can relate to feeling a little pain in the obliques or lower back when doing random things.

Heck, while formatting this blog, I threw my back out three different times. I'm guessing a few people probably did while reading it, too. It's a dangerous world out there.

Granderson Hurt Eating a Sandwich

Sneezing? Check. Moving a pillow? Check. Sleepwalking through a nightmare about spiders after kicking an iron bar stool? Check.

You can now add "eating a corned-beef sandwich" to that list.

One day after learning about utility man Brandon Inge's pillow accident that landed him on the DL, Tigers officials learned that OF Curtis Granderson will be joining him after attempting to eat dinner last night.

While ordering at an unidentified restaurant, Granderson could feel a tweak in his shoulder when holding the menu. He brushed it off as nothing. It was nothing until he picked up his sandwich.

"I was really hunger, and it looked so good," Granderson told reporters. "I ignored all signs of precaution and went for it. Now I'm paying the price."

Said pitcher Kenny Rogers who was dining with him, "I told him to be careful. I told him to order the soup like me, but he wouldn't listen. Now he has to learn from this experience and eat wisely in the future."

Granderson was placed on the DL for a pulled muscle in his shoulder and back spasms. He will likely be out 4-6 weeks. The Tigers have bought back OF Brent Clevlen to take his roster spot.

The Tigers clubhouse has now banned all pillows and sandwiches. "You can't be too careful," Tigers President and General Manager told reporters. "We don't need anymore injuries like these and we need to protect the other players from these harmful objects."

Hell, I'll just spill it here.

I was admitted to the hospital on May 26th (Memorial Day) with chest pains and it turns out I had a minor heart attack.
The bigger problem is that it was caused by a nasty infection in my foot. Being Diabetic, this is problematic and sure enough, the infection spread to the bones in my foot.
The sad result is that I ended up losing my right leg to amputation and have a long, lengthy rehab ahead of me while I re-learn how to walk on a prosthetic leg.
I have been in the hospitsl now over a month and just hoping to go home around July 4th. We'll see.
T%he one thing keeping me going is my Tigers are finally playing like we had all hoped they would.
Pray for me and keep in touch as I can always use some cheering up.

GO TIGERS.....EVEN NANDO!!
