I really have no clever response to this but I sure someone will.


That's thanks to Padres starter Mat Latos, who became the latest baseball player to hit the disabled list for a sneezing injury, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

The 22-year-old pitcher was walking down some steps at Coors Field in Denver last Friday when he stifled a sneeze, causing him to experience pain in his side.

I let 'er rip, spray flying everywhere, even farting sometimes along with the sneeze.

Phantom DL trip? So he can go deeper into the season?

I once had a car accident due to a sneeze. :O) Guy in front of me slammed on his breaks on a wet road...right as I sneezed. Re-opened my eyes and BLAM!

I'm not saying this can't happen (I think the same thing happened to Mike Lansing years ago and he had to have back surgery), but I strongly suspect that this injury was made up by the organization. It has been their well-published plan all along to keep Latos at 160 innings max. Better now than end of season.

I don't think we have to be conspiracy theorists to feel this way. The league probably got tired of hearing about "anxiety" and this is the new flavor of the month.
