God’s Wrath Watch: Darwin Barney to Miss Time After Cutting Knee in Stupid Fake Game Against Astros
You gotta be freaking kidding me.
After deciding to play all of his regulars in a stupid, meaningless, fake game against the Houston Astros – who started no regulars – Dale Sveum is now going to be without his Gold Glove-winning second baseman for at least Opening Day, and possibly longer.
While trying to catch a foul ball against the wall in Houston, Darwin Barney gashed his knee open, and required five stitches. Brent Lillibridge will start in his place on Monday, and the Cubs will make a disabled list decision within the next couple of days.
This actually happened.
