Johnny Damon leaves Tigers-Twins game with calf spasms

May 5, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

At this point I’ve completely lost track of the number of calf injuries that have occurred in baseball this season. It’s like the shark attacks in the summer of 2001. They probably always happened, but we’re all of a sudden hearing of them every single day.

The latest victim: Johnny Damon, who left in the fourth inning of this afternoon’s Tigers-Twins game with what’s being described as “calf spasms.” No word on whether this is an injury or if he just needs more potassium or whatever.  Updates — breathless updates, befitting the epidemic nature of these calf attacks — as they become available.

    Well, Jeff: 5-4 Twins
    Since I have this annoying habit of predicting Universe results (BAL-CHW-BAL 7-2, quite correct) just do a quick road trip 5-2 for upcoming BOS-DET road trip.
    Can we get Tex-ARod going alittle more? Nick Johnson doesn’t have any great consequence for me. Nor, apparently Sterling, who gives him the “Jolly Ol’ St. Nick” leftover .

    What’s a calf spasm? Seriously, athletes are major wusses now.

    I feel better now, since I’m currently down with my second calf strain in the last 12 months. I thought it was only me. The EPL also seems to be suffering from calf strain-itis this year. It does seem like this year is a big year for calf problems, and they seem to take a while to heal.
