Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister

After Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani started the season on a tear, hitting .367 with three homers through eight games, and posting two dominant starts that featured a five-inning stretch with 65 pitches and 10 strikeouts, it seemed his only kryptonite would be an eventual regression to numbers resembling normalcy. Enter…

Jurickson Profar's Been Through the Damn Wringer Jurickson Profar's Been Through the Damn Wringer

God, I feel so bad for Jurickson Profar. Once the consensus top overall prospect in baseball, Profar has spent the last few years sustaining and sort-of-recovering-from a series of increasingly strange injuries.

This is from the Bahrain Grand Prix, happening today in, uhh, Bahrain. Driver Kimi Räikkönen appears to release from the pit before the crew is ready, and this guy’s leg is immediately in front of the rear tire. Fair warning! The video is extremely fucking gross:

Corey Knebel's Injury Sure Is A Bummer Corey Knebel's Injury Sure Is A Bummer

Last night was a rough one for the Brewers. They got shut out by the Cubs at home. They made two ugly errors in a three-run inning. And they lost closer Corey Knebel, who took the mound for the ninth in a game where he wasn’t really needed and went down with a hamstring injury that’ll keep him out for 10 days or…

"Dead Arm" Has Temporarily Turned Josh Donaldson Into A Noodle-Armed Designated Hitter "Dead Arm" Has Temporarily Turned Josh Donaldson Into A Noodle-Armed Designated Hitter

I would like for you to bear in mind that what you are about to see is a defensive highlight—it shows Josh Donaldson, Toronto’s third baseman, making a nice diving stab to his left, then rising to make a throw across the diamond. It’s the throw you’ll want to watch, in particular—it jumps out at you, despite the pay…

Steph Curry Will Miss At Least The Start Of The Playoffs Steph Curry Will Miss At Least The Start Of The Playoffs

Steph Curry’s knee injury could have been much, much worse, which is just about the only good thing you can say for the Warriors.
