How’s your Monday going? Probably a lot better than Alex Avila’s.
The Detroit Tigers catcher took a foul tip off the nuts on Sunday night against the Boston Red Sox. That’s probably the only time he wishes one of Boston’s players — in this case Shane Victorino — actually got a hold of the pitch. Hey, any outcome would have been better than that. Not even a cup could help that.
If there is any bright side in this situation — and we readily admit we’re digging deep here — it’s that at least the ball looks like it only got one of his boys, not both. Now that’s something to be thankful for.
