K-Rod's Arm Bursts Into Flames as he Ties Thigpen's Record

>> Friday



ANAHEIM - It was a bittersweet moment on Thursday night for the Angels' Fransico Rodriguez as he tied Bobby Thigpen's major league single-season saves record and simultaneously saw his right arm burst into an uncontrollable inferno.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia was reluctant to comment on the apparent injury following the game. "He'll be fine," said Scioscia. "Once we got [the fire engulfing his right arm] put out, he felt better and went back in to ice and do his normal rehab. Nothing to see here. I did NOT overuse him this year."

Devastating as the injury could be for the Angels' championship hopes, it could also prove disastrous for Rodriguez' hopes to land a big contract in the free agent market this off-season, where he's pledged to test the waters before committing to a stay in Anaheim.

"I'm not really worried about it," said a charred K-Rod in the clubhouse following the game as he gave off a smell not unlike overcooked barbeque pork. "My arm's fine. I've been dealing with injury risk questions forever, whether it's due to my violent delivery, the high strain my slider puts on me or the spontaneous combustion of my right arm. I'll be OK."

When pressed about where he might land in 2009, Rodriguez smiled and proclaimed confidently, "the Disabled List. Guaranteed contracts, baby."

Haha, even as I look at it now, I'm ashamed of how absolutely lazy my photoshop job was. God damn.

HAHAHA... I think you've topped my "Tony LaRussa walking on air" effect with this one. Yet, it was still great, and I love you've apparently adopted my mental approach of:

fleeting thought not worth posting on --> whatever... I'll post on it anyway --> wow, that's really stupid --> Publish!

And it couldn't have come at a better time since I've been too preoccupied with other stuff to fill the role of nonsense filler guy.

It reminds me of the graphics on the original SimCity when you had a fire on your property.

Hahahaha, dead on. Unfortunately n this case, it broke out on the big factory with the three smokestacks and not the empty yellow box an "I" in the middle.
