Buehrle's excuse for his bad inning

Mark Buehrle’s Marlins debut went pretty well overall last Thursday, but Miami gave him no run support. Buehrle managed to go six innings and allowed just two earned runs on seven hits, but he still picked up the loss. Had he been more careful while making a sandwich earlier in the day, the left-hander says he could have given his team an even better chance to win.

 

According to the Palm Beach Post, Buehrle sliced the thumb on his pitching hand a few hours before game time while he was opening a jar of mayonnaise.

 

“I came in to make a sandwich and they said ‘You know we have people who can make sandwiches for you,’’’ Buehrle said. “(I said) ‘I’m a grown man, I can make my own sandwich.’ It was just a complete freak thing.�

While the injury did not force him to miss his start, Buehrle said it was on his mind in the first inning when he allowed a hit, walked a batter and hit another.

 

“The ball sat right there, a couple of times I would move my thumb forward just thinking I don’t want to rip it or hurt it even worse,� he said. “Once I realized I’m all over the place, walking guys and hitting guys I said, ‘screw it. I got to deal with it.’’’

 

You may remember last season when Brewers hurler Chris Narveson had to miss a start after slicing his hand with scissors while trying to fix his glove. Blue Jays pitcher Brett Cecil also hurt his hand trying to clean out a blender. I admire Buehrle for trying to be a big boy and make his own sandwich, but as we’ve learned MLB players are just too darn fragile. Maybe some professional athletes have a good reason for making other people wipe their butt for them.

The mayonnaise companies are going to be in an outrage about this. Buehrle is gonna have to apologize publicly, he might even get shot during the apology. You guys wouldn't know, you weren't in the mayonnaise companies.

I just can't wrap my head around the idea that people put their lives in the palm of your hands.

 

Unless you're Nicki Minaj's doctor; that would make more sense.
