Pillow Sends Brandon Inge to the DL

I’m always a sucker for weird baseball injuries, so after seeing this up at SportsbyBrooks, there was no question I had to post it. Brandon Inge was placed on the DL with a strained oblique. How did it happen you ask? The Detroit Free Press answers the question:

Inge said he aggravated the injury moving a pillow for his three-year-old Monday night. He said if not for that mishap, he probably would have tried to continue to play with the injury, which he said has bothered him since he suffered it on June 1 in Seattle.

Told of Inge’s account of the pillow, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said, “That’s a first.”

Well, after hearing that Raul Ibanez hurt himself sleeping, Aaron Rowand by playing tag, and Brandon Marshall by slipping on a McDonald’s bag, I can’t say I’m that surprised by this one. Amazing. Not that I did any sports betting on it, but my money at the sportsbook would have been on the Tigers to win the World Series before the year started. Now I know why they’re struggling — everything that could possibly go wrong has gone wrong. And they’re only five games out of first, too!

    Reminds me of a funny tv show bit… dude strained his back while leaning forward for his glaucoma check on his eyes. His friend said, “I guess they forgot to tell you to stretch before your eye exam”.
