Justin Upton is having a bad last week

I don’t mean that he’s having a bad week statistically speaking — though he kind of is — I mean that bad stuff is happening to him.

The other day he had to leave a game early when he was hit in the head with a pitch and subsequently suffered nausea. Last night he had to leave a game early — well, in the tenth inning anyway — after getting hit in the head when a ball he was trying to catch ricocheted off the wall.  You can see it happen here.

The events allowed Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis to reach third on a triple and to drive in two runs, making it a 6-1 game in the 10th. Of course, the Dbacks came back in a wild bottom half of the inning to win it, so that part of it is all good.

Not good: Arizona’s best hitter continually being pummeled about the noggin in the season’s last week.

    This time, Gibson made the correct move (getting him out of the game immediately). Maybe he learned something in the interim between the Lincecum beaning and last night about concussion and post-concussion symptoms and their dangers. Like I said at the other post, he appears to be an intelligent fellow, but his leaving that kid in the game after the beaning was ignorant and borderline moronic. So maybe he’s learned something, which would place him above many of his peers and a majority of managers in corporate America.
