Russell Branyan out with pizza parlor injury

Sep 22, 2010, 5:59 PM EDT

Russell Branyan is hurt. They way he did it beats sneezing or falling down carrying deer meat or washing your truck or what have you. I mean, hey, at least he got pizza:

“On
the off day last week, I took my family to a pizza parlor,” Branyan
said. “They had plastic chairs, and after we’d eaten, my little guy had
kicked one of his flip flops off.

“I was sitting on the edge of the chair, leaning down to pick it up,
and the chair slid out from under me on the cement floor. I landed right
on my tail bone.”

This is not the first weird injury Branyan has had. Not even the first this year. Back in July, you’ll recall, a hotel table fell over on his foot. Because tables just fall over like that.

Branyan has missed four games because of this. But they were Mariners games, so it’s not like they counted for anything.

    Russell the Muscle 25 HR’s leads the team. I don’t know why they didn’t re-sign him in the first place. Nobody else can hit the long ball. Every team needs someone to scare the opposing pitcher.

    Because he wanted multiple years and too much money. The bigger problem was that Kotchman was HORRIBLE!
    .
    After Branyan came down from his wishes though, they should have given him a 1-yr deal and told Kotchman to go eat it.
