Look, I know we’ve gone Manny crazy around here lately, but we’re nutsy and irresponsible bloggers who don’t know nothin.’ The Associated Press, however, is supposed to be filled with grownups with more self control. But check out the screencap of their baseball news feed from a couple of minutes ago afternoon. The only thing that will top this will be my next post: an editorial about Manny’s feelings about the Mannification of the Mannia. Er, I mean media.
MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports that White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. The club called up outfielder Daniel Palka from Triple-A Charlotte.
Garcia, 26, suffered the injury during Monday’s game against the Mariners. He is off to a slow start this season, batting .233/.250/.315 with a home run and four RBI in 76 plate appearances.
Palka, 26, has been playing well for Charlotte, batting .286/.384/.476 with three home runs and seven RBI in 73 PA.
