Add one to the list of ridiculous reasons why baseball players miss games -

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus was scratched from Thursday's Cactus League game against the Cleveland Indians due to muscle soreness in his left arm caused by a new tattoo.


At least it was a tattoo of his late father.

I'd still trade a lot of assets to the Rangers for Andrus. Even if his new tattoo was of Ryan Braun's face.

Nothing - I repeat nothing - tops Glenallen Hill's injury suffered when he suffered injuries sleepwalking after having a nightmare about spiders. He is apparently deathly afraid of spiders and was trying to get away from imaginary spiders in his dream.

I typed the above before finding the linked website . . . perhaps Glenallen Hill's injury is not the "top" strange injury after all: http://www.oobsports.com/injury.html

I wish that he would have suffered this injury on game day prior to Game 7 or the 1991 or 1992 NLCS... :cry:

26. The 2005 season also included Colorado rookie phenom Clint Barmes, who was shelved by a broken collarbone incurred when lugging deer meat up his apartment-house steps.

Perhaps this is the reason he can't hit anymore. Stupid deer.

I wasn't paying a whole lot of attention to Colorado in 2005, but man o man does it look strange to see "rookie phenom" and Clint Barmes in the same sentence.

Barmes was well on his way to receiving Rookie of the Year honors in 2005 before he decided to go hunting. He probably would have flamed out over his career much like Bobby Crosby did and ended up as the same player, but I suspect he would have at least had some hardware from that season.
