Joaquin Benoit Had to Remove a Bandage Because it Possessed Superhero Powers

If you’re wondering why baseball is not as popular as it used to be, it’s because they allow nonsense like this to go on:

Honestly, Joe Girardi? You made Joaquin Benoit remove a bandage from his face because it was large and too much of a distraction? Serves you right that he went 1.2 key innings late in the game without allowing a run. That’s what you get for bothering with such menial rubbish.

And while we’re on the subject of Joaquin Benoit, does anyone else think it would have been a good idea for Mark Teixeira to swing 3-0 in the 7th? During the regular season, taking the walk is the right move. But when you’re down to your final seven outs of the season and down by two, I want my slugger taking his best shot on a fastball piped right down the middle. That’s just me.

Anyway, leave it to David Wells to put the bandage idiocy into proper perspective:

He’s no Charles Barkley in the studio, but that was well played.

Gracias, CJ Fogler
