Reds Prospect Bitten On Foot By Shark; Told By Dusty To Rub Dirt On It

Our stylin' friend John Fay at the Cincinnati.com Reds blog just tipped us off to one of the wilder baseball stories of the summer. It seems that Reds draft pick Chad Rogers was bitten on the foot by a shark while surfing. Bitchin!

Kid's a pitcher and the"5 foot bull shark" just nabbed his foot for 60 stitches. Shouldn't be nearly as bad as the impending doom waiting for his rotator cuff when he makes the bigs. And if that does happen, he seems to have a pretty good on his shoulders.

Despite his injuries, Rogers said he's ready to get back in the water.

"If I get bit again, though, I'll probably stay out for sure," he said. "I'm not testing my luck that much."

That is unassailable athlete logic. Get well soon Roy Scheider!

Carlos Ruiz just broke up a perfect game in the bottom of the ninth with a double to the gap... in a 0-0 game! WHEEEEEEE

Carlos Ruiz is history's greatest monster.

Carlos Ruiz is adorable. I want to hug him and squeeze him and put him in my pocket and bring him home with me.
