Wanna see the big hole in Michael Cuddyer’s foot where a wart used to be?

Mar 3, 2011, 1:45 PM EDT

Michael Cuddyer, who’s expected to miss the next couple weeks, posted the picture on Twitter and … well, you were warned:

    Anyone else in the mood for a bowl of soup? This literally makes me sick & gives me chills to look at so I’m an ass for clicking on this. I think I have trypophobia.

      Ok, I was kinda scoffing at Cuddyer when he said that he had a wart on his foot and would miss 1-2 weeks, but WOW.

    You know, the rest of that paddle don’t look so good either….

    Ow. Mommy.

    imagine how much that had to hurt to walk on

    Right on the ball of the foot too. Damn.

    How is he even walking for two weeks?

    Nobody listens to me. I keep warning them to watch out for those invisible horned toads. “Wart,” sure. Like you want us to believe that something amenable to treatment by over-the-counter cryogenics and corrosives for everyone else only didn’t work in your special case. Forget it. I clearly discern the pattern of puncture marks left by stepping on Phrynosoma platyrhinos calidiarum, and these guys are just too embarrassed to admit that Cuddyear walked out to the coke machine in his socks and nailed himself.

    I’m saving my sympathy for the horned toad.

      Thanks to your timely warnings of last weekend, I have my defenses up, you never know what will turn up in New Jersey. Today, black bears, tomorrow horned toads.
      Luckily I called Homeland Security to keep FAT TOAD off the westbound GWB.

    Wow! That’s plain nasty. And totally effed up.

    I’m usually pretty squeamish about this stuff, but honestly this doesn’t bother me so much. If you show me a dude blowing out his knee in slow motion, I will either lose my lunch or pass out. This is gross, but more because its a close up of a dude’s foot than because of how painful it looks. The soles of your feet are like leather. Removing a wart from there is probably the least painful place on the body.

      Ya, but they took out a nickel sized hole of that leather, and is now exposed flesh. Gotta hurt.

      If that’s true, then I guess torture by slamming the bottoms of the feet isn’t very effective, huh?

    • bdickey33 - Mar 3, 2011 at 5:57 PM

      You have to be kidding? Like leather? Your feet have more nerve ending than any place in your body. Try getting a numbing shot into your heel. I’m surprised the doctor lived when I did.

        Well, I was gonna leave this one alone, BUT, since our boy bradwins said it was non-painful…sorry, not so much with the non-painful. Least painful spots tend to be backs of the arms and legs. Interestingly the most pierced body parts, the septum of the nose and lobe of the ears, are quite sensitive comparatively. Now if you really want to see how sensitive the soles of your feet are, have someone sit on you and someone else tickle your feet. Since you probably don’t actually need to have to have this happen to know that you’ll go nuts, you can figure that the soles of the feet are really not some place you want a half inch wide to 1/3 inch deep hole in. Cuddyer’s painful foot is REALLY painful. Doubt he can even wear a sock with that uncovered. Plantar warts are just no fun at all.

    I had a wart on my foot in roughly the same spot. I am a running and I am in an adult football league. Its a pesky thing, its constantly rubbing and you’re always aware of it. The worst part is, when it does burst black spores come out (or it did with mine). At least it happened in spring training.

    Good luck Cuddyer!
