Down for the count.
There are few reasons for sending Major League Baseball players to the Disabled List that actually make me physically uncomfortable. Obviously compound fractures — you know, where the bone shoots through…gross — and being plunked in the face with a Randy Johnson fastball are just about the only injuries that come to mind when I think of the worst of the worst.
Until I heard about Chris Snyder’s injury.
The Diamondback’s catcher was placed on the Disabled List yesterday with what is being diagnosed as a fractured left testicle. And yes, you read that correctly: he freakin’ broke his balls, man.
I have no idea what a testicle fracture is but I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of pain that shoots through my body when I try to discern what this injury might entail. I’m talking being-tazed-in-the-throat-while-forced-to-watch-Rosie O’Donnell Show reruns pain.
Snyder’s current situation is almost as severe as having to be placed on the Bereavement List for a death in the family; seriously, my condolences go out to Chris.
