    Angels' Rivera breaks leg in winter game

    December 22, 2006

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Angels outfielder Juan Rivera broke his left leg Friday during a winter league game in Venezuela.

    Rivera broke his left tibia in the Oriente Caribbeans' game against the Aragua Tigers in Maracay. The Angels said Rivera's leg has been placed in a cast and he will be flown to Miami, where he will be re-examined by a trauma specialist Saturday.

    Last season, the 28-year-old Rivera had career bests in average (.310), runs (65), hits (139), home runs (23) and RBIs (85)

    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    I thought Rivera broke someone else's leg.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
