Don’t you feel bad now about making jokes about Angel Pagan being in the bathroom when he was supposed to be at bat last night?  Wait, you didn’t make jokes about it? Only I did?  Well then.

Anyway, Andy Martino’s sources tell him that it wasn’t just a bad burrito that got to Pagan but, rather, he has colitis and has suffered with it for several years.  I knew someone who had it — more acute, while Pagan’s would seem to be chronic — but boy howdy, you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy.

So, sorry Angel. Here’s hoping you don’t have to deal with that stuff during a ballgame again.

    Colitis sucks.

    Poo is really funny except when it isn’t.

      Except if it’s Mr. Hanky the Christmas Poo. If you have a lot of fiber in your diet and it’s Christmas, he pays you a visit.

        That would be the funnier side of poo…. Pagan’s poo problems pick at the predominately pessimistic portion of poo pieces.

        Funnier side of poo…I didn’t realise there could be mutiple sides to poo. I always thought that it was cylindrical.

    I can’t be the only person that read it as “coitus” right away, right?

      I did not read that—but thanks for giving me that mental image.

      I did, however read “Josh Hamilton goes hunting, takes drugs, kills a deer.” Upon further review, he was just TALKing about them, rather than taking them.

        I unfortunately read both of those headlines with those exact errors. I think I’m going to call it a night from HBT. My eyes are clearly rebelling. But I’ll be back tomorrow …
