And I don't really understand it because Aramis swings so gently, like he's trying to catch a butterfly or something.
Okay, just kidding.
Actually, I'm sure that Tom Skilling takes into consideration the effect of Aramis' swinging bat when he makes his weather reports. I'm sure it's part of the reason people still call Chicago the Windy City. And I'm also sure that when he does connect, it's as violent a collision as there is in sports.
He's not going on the DL to fix it. Rather, Lou's gonna have him rest on the bench while Fontenot or Baker cover for him at third.
The question I've got, and I haven't really dug around, but exactly when did the thumb get bruised? Is this an excuse for pretty much all of April and May? Or is it kinda recent?
Don't really know.
But maybe you got a laugh from the little cartoon thing up top.
