What can we say? We have the sense of humor of a few six-year-old boys here at LBS. Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz missed Wednesday night’s game because of a left testicle contusion. He got hurt after getting hit in the schnuts by a foul ball Tuesday. Chooch managed to catch the final three innings of that game but it acted up the next day, forcing him to take a game off.
“He kind of got hit in the family jewels,” Manuel said of Ruiz Wednesday.
Brian Schneider caught for the Phillies and went 1-for-3 in their 9-2 win Wednesday night. I’d suggest Ruiz try out one of those NuttyBuddy cups, but apparently they’re not too reliable.
