    Don't know if this is on Baseball Thread MXCLLVIII or not. But came across this on the wire and cringed.

    And just when you think the Cubs can't have any more injuries, just saw this in the game notes:
    (Jacque) Jones left the game in the top of the ninth because of an infection in his left eye's tear duct had worsened, causing his eye to swell. He is day-to-day

    No one better be making any jokes on this thread.

    A bleeding scrotum is nothing to laugh at.

    This makes me want to cry, for more than one reason. I don't think anyone (male or female) can imagine having internal bleeding within the scrotum.

    As scary a pain as can be imagined.

    He stayed in the game and batted after getting hit? Yikes, that really takes balls.

    Buck Coats is a great name for a ballplayer.

    That, and RIP Michael Barrett's scrotum.

    That's his real name too, as evidenced by this hilarious quote:

    "That's it -- Buck Coats. No middle name," he said. "I was raised in the country."

    Official diagnosis: Intrascrotal Hematoma. Not joking, but it sounds like one of ChrisL's fantasy teams.

    Horrible injury. Maybe we need to organize a Scrotum Appreciation Day.
