Geoff Blum injures his elbow . . . while getting dressed

Jul 5, 2010, 9:19 AM EDT

One of the biggest reasons I took this job is because I hate having to, you know, get dressed in order to go to work.  I mean, it was just a matter of time before what happened to the Astros’ Geoff Blum over the weekend happened to me:

Blum felt a “pop” in his elbow while putting on his shirt following
Thursday’s contest against the Padres, according to manager Brad Mills.
With the soreness continuing into Friday, Blum was evaluated at a local
hospital where doctors found “loose bodies” in the elbow.

“He was putting on his shirt after the game, and his elbow goes, ‘Boom,
pop,’ and it blows up on him,” Mills said.

Fight the real enemy, people.

    Maybe those shirts and pants are the cause for so many thumb injuries. See how recklessly the thmbs are jutting into the pockets or beltlines? Just dangerous stuff.

    In addition to outlawing celebrations after game winning homers and AL pitchers running the bases, we need to forbid players from wearing shirts. We just can’t accept the injury risk. When will baseball wise up and starting protecting their valuable players from these needless injury risks? ;)
