“USA Today-Chicago Cubs closer Brandon Morrow can blame his pants – and not anything on the field – for his latest injury.
The pitcher was unavailable for Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers due to a back injury he suffered as a result of taking down his pants. He then was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday morning.
“Just undressing at my house,” Morrow, who has 16 saves this season, told reporters on Tuesday. “Like 3 a.m., in the closet, got my right leg off. Left one just felt like a spasm in my back. It’s frustrating any time you can’t get out there, especially when you can’t go because of something stupid like taking your pants off.
“Getting hurt any time’s frustrating, but when it’s not related to throwing a baseball it’s even that much more frustrating.”
Morrow expects to be back soon, and added: “I’m hoping that since it’s not like a trauma-induced spasm — like I wasn’t throwing a pitch or lifting something or twisting — that once the muscle relaxes it should be OK.””
I just don’t get how someone messes up their back taking off their pants. I mean, there’s been times I’ve fallen putting my pants on (one leg in, stepping into the other leg, fall and hurt my wrist) but I don’t get how someone is that unathletic to cause a back injury. Thoughts and prayers go out to you, Mr. Morrow. I’d hate to see your career end from taking off your pants.
Tiger Wood’s career basically ended because he was taking his pants off a lot (that means he was having sex a lot with other girls (also probably why he hurt his back, so maybe that’s how Chris Morrow hurt his back too. From having sex. Or maybe Tiger’s injury was from the pants being taken off, like Morrow))
