Willie Ballgame

The team's grittiest player, now 72% more gritty:

The Mariners' run of strange injuries continued Thursday night when utilityman Willie Bloomquist smashed his finger in the Mariners' weight room in Peoria, Ariz.

Bloomquist needed three stitches to close the cut on his right little finger. He was supposed to be in the starting lineup Friday afternoon against Colorado in Tucson, Ariz., but he had to be scratched.

It'd be nice to know just how this happened, exactly, but I'm a little curious as to what Willie was doing in a weight room to begin with. This is right up there with Carl Everett hurting himself at a natural history museum, or Matt Thornton getting injured at a People Who Don't Suck At Everything Convention.
