Per usual, there were numerous choices for this week’s Friday Fail…Kasey Kahne dissing breastfeeding on Twitter, the non-existent defenses of Baylor and Univ. of Washington, or even finding out that the Angels will be paying Pujols $30mil+/year in his final contract years. Nah, too tame. No, this week, we’ve picked something a bit more, umm, violent?
Well, earlier this week, Rangers’ catcher Yorvit Torrealba was suspended for 66 games in the Venezuelan League (which I’m told is pretty much the entire season) for hitting an umpire in the face during a game. Any punishments from this league do not carry over to the MLB, but that still doesn’t mean that either the Rangers or MLB won’t punish him for the altercation.
Here’s the video:
Uhh…yikes. I’d make fun, but well, he sorta scares me now. Yorvit, please don’t eat my (imaginary) children.
