That's not exactly what I had in mind for the start of the game. It didn't look like it was too bad, but what do I know? Roberto Clemente once broke Bob Gibson's leg with a liner and Gibson finished the inning.
Aceves has been awesome once again.
Here's hoping Joba's OK.
[UPDATE 9:10 P.M. - X-rays negative. Just a bruise. That's a relief. Also, I looked up the Clemente-Gibson game. Gibson didn't finish the inning. Clemente got him leading off the fourth. Gibson faced three more batters, then exited. Three batters on a broken leg. Two of them HoFers - Stargell and Mazeroski. And he got Mazeroski out. Bob Gibson was bad ass. Jeff Karstens had a similar experience two years ago, but he could only manage one batter (our namesake) on a broken leg. What a pussy.]
