    A couple more I have to include because this thread needs them--

    (My personal favorite) Francisco Liriano broke his non-throwing arm when he slammed it against a door while trying to startle his kids on Christmas. http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...stmas-morning/

    And, in true Sammy Sosa fashion, Matt Latos went on the 15-day DL with a side strain from trying to suppress a sneeze. http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...=mlb&fext=.jsp

    When Mike Matheny was catching for the Cardinals right before the playoffs he opened up a package containing a hunting knife and sliced his hand. He missed the playoffs.

    "I'm getting tired of the assumption that I hurt myself playing hockey," Holland said. "I played the full game and was fine."

    Holland was adamant that playing hockey, which he does at times during the offseason, had nothing to do with the injury. He said he played Monday night, but was fine Tuesday before the accident happened.

    Step on a cactus lately?

    K-Rod stepped on a cactus.
    ...
    Why was Rodriguez walking around barefoot in cactus country? That question remained unanswered because he was busy in the trainer's room, according to a spokesperson.
