Gordon Beckham has hit .327 in 39 games since returning from a broken hamate bone in early June, but the White Sox second baseman injured his surgically repaired wrist Friday.

Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Beckham tweaked his wrist while taking pregame batting practice, but played that night and Saturday before sitting out Sunday. And now he’s expected to miss at least a few more games.

Beckham explained that a doctor told him “the ligament came off the bone” but then quickly added: “I know that sounds bad, but it apparently is just a strain.” Well, he’s right that it “sounds bad.”

      what if the poor misguided fool had a clue? what if the coaches had a clue?

      saturday in an interview, chris rongey asked him how he broke his hand. “it’s just one of those things.. it’s the luck of the draw.” o my god. shoot me.

      gordy, in the real world that all us mortals live in.. things happen for a reason. newton’s 3rd law of motion states “for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction.” basically, every action has a consequence. when you refuse to understand this LAW.. you get what you have:

      a player who has no clue he is implementing actions which are self-destructive.. and the coaches have no clue as well. how can this end well?

        I really hate it when idiots talk about things that they don’t understand. You are the fool not Gordon. If Gordon starts using laws of Physics to explain crap that has nothing to do with Physics then he’ll be the fool. I no way does anything you are talking about have anything to do with conservation of energy. You sounded like a complete idiot.
