They need to make a rule that if a runner gets injured by an errant ball after going back and touching the bag (before getting tagged by the fielder) they should be safe. Not fair that a pitcher can just hit you with the ball and you are out.

Buck totally agree that is a crap call. After being injured by the pitcher and safe at first he fell over. That should be a time out period.

His official injury status says he is day-to-day with a "testicular contusion". Ow.

I was listening to that on the radio driving home from work last night. The announcers said something to the effect of, "Now, looking at the replay, it looks like Carl got hit in ... a bad spot."

Seemed a little high to get hit in the beanbag.

Regardless, the second comment on that link is full of win:

"Send over a bottle of bubbly with a bucket of ice and a card. Have it say, 'Tough break, get drunk on me. Use the bucket to ice down your marbles, Yours, Z.'"

OUCH!!!!!

I'm surprised they didn't use the "freeze spray" stuff.

Was that Wiggington playing first? He shoulda had that throw. Crawford needs to get even for that.

Fuggin Orioles can't do anything right.

Little leaguers wear cups. Why don't the major leaguers? His bad, IMO.

It's a little known fact that Crawford told Arrieta that he couldn't hit water if he fell out of a fucking boat.

Pro football players don't wear cups either.

Fucking stupid, IMO.

i dont agree that he should be safe. It sucks, but he's out. lol

Its not like the pitcher was intentionally doing it. Thats a blind throw t.and it was not intentional. Dude should have had a cup on. I know they have cups that are made to take care of that fully. I seen an ex baseball player demonstrate that with a pitching machine throwing at 90mph and he took about 10 shots one right after the other to the nutsack and he didnt flinch one bit.

Baseball players wear cups based on the position they play usually, like a catcher always has one on an outfielder never does.

He must have been some kind of Zen Master or something...

I've been hit in the cup before, it's not pleasant... probably would've been much worse without one, but I would never take those shots on purpose...
