Best. Injury. Evar.

This article comes courtesy of the Detroit Free Press, discussing Joel Zumaya's decline in performance during the postseason...

The Tigers are satisfied they won't see a recurrence of the right wrist and forearm inflammation that sidelined Joel Zumaya for three games of the American League Championship Series.

Why? Club president and general manager Dave Dombrowski told WXYT-AM (1270) on Wednesday the team had concluded Zumaya's injury resulted from playing a video game, not from his powerful throwing motion.

Zumaya, 22, was known to play "Guitar Hero," a PlayStation 2 game in which a player uses a guitar-shaped controller to simulate the performance of popular songs.

That's right, the dumbass flamethrower hurt his arm playing glorified air guitar. Maybe next week, JD Drew will hurt himself playing Dance Dance Revolution.

I imagine someone will be put on the DL by a Nintendo Wii injury. Can we put some odds on it?

How about Nascar driver Jimmy Johnson breaking his wrist last week after falling off "from" a golf cart? Understandable if you take a turn too fast and aren't holding on. But then the report came out that he was RIDING ON THE ROOF OF THE CART. Nice...
