Vicente Padilla Learned Nothing from Plaxico Burress' Mistakes

Dodgers pitcher Vicente Padilla obviously did not take gun cleaning lessons from a professional. While hunting for the most dangerous game (I assume chickens) in his native Nicaragua on Tuesday, Padilla shot himself in the right leg and was later treated for a minor wound at a local hospital.

Katz described the incident as a "hunting accident," saying that Padilla was grazed in his right thigh by a bullet. Katz said that Padilla spent 30 to 40 minutes at a hospital and was discharged.

"He's fine," Katz said.

News reports out of Nicaragua stated that Padilla was hurt at a shooting range. At least two news outlets reported that Padilla was accidentally shot by his "escort," who was trying to fix Padilla's malfunctioning gun.

Dodgers G.M. Ned Colletti sympathizes, having shot himself in the leg by forcing his team to start Padilla in a playoff elimination game on the road.

Chipper should teach him about gun safety.

Yeah, Chipper! I'll say his name a third time to spare somebody else the trouble of Candyman-ing him. Chipper Jones! Okay, he should show up now.

I guess you could say he was having problems with his control that day.

DMAK HALLOWSWEEN IS OVER THERE IS NO MORE CANDYMEN WHO WILL BE COMING TO THE DOOR SORRY TO SAY

BUT YEAH THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE CRAZIEST THING THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD OF A BALLPLAYER DOING WHY WAS HE HUNTING CHICKENS YOU CAN GET THOSE AT THE HYVEE AND PLUS SHOOTING AT GAME LIKE THAT IS LIKE TRYING TO HIT A FOUL BALL (I JUST BLEW YOUR MIND)

I MEAN I AM A REAL MASTER AT GUNCRAFT SO OF COURSE IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO A REAL GUY LIKE ME BUT I HAVE HEARD OF SOME DUMBWITS WHO HAVE FIRED ON THEIR PERSONS. ONE TIME MY FRIEND TERRY WAS PICKING UP A JAR OF GOLDEN ESTRUS OFF THE GROUND AND HIS 38 SPECIAL JUST CLEAR DISCHARGED RIGHT THROUGH HIS BACK REAR END SIDE. LUCKY FOR HIM HE CARRIES A BIBLE IN ALL EIGHT POCKETS OF HIS PANTS OR ELSE WE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN FOR THE WILD RIDE OF OUR LIVES

SO TO ALL OF YOU YOUNG BUCKS OUT THERE (FIGURE THAT OUT) OL CHIP ADVISES ALL OF YOU GUYS TO KEEP IT COOL AND PLAY IT SAFE AND YOU CAN HIT A HUNTING HOME RUN JUST LIKE NUMBER 10

I might be the only one here who still doesn't quite understand what sort of metaphysical trickery has to occur to bring CHIPPER to us, but I want to make clear that whoever is involved deserves some sort of international commendation.
