    Isringhausen on DL after punching TV

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3399784

    ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals put struggling closer Jason Isringhausen, who has an 8.00 ERA and six blown saves, on the 15-day disabled list on Friday because of a cut on his pitching hand.

    The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported last weekend that Isringhausen hurt his right hand striking a television set in frustration in manager Tony La Russa's office.

    Isringhausen was 32-for-34 in save opportunities last year, a season after he missed the team's World Series run because of hip surgery.

    Isringhausen and La Russa have said repeatedly that the pitcher's problems are not physical.

    The team purchased the contract of rookie right-hander Chris Perez, the closer at Triple-A Memphis, and transferred right-handed reliever Josh Kinney from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. Kinney is recovering from elbow surgery.

    The 22-year-old Perez is 1-1 with eight saves and a 2.04 ERA in 18 games in the minors, with 22 strikeouts and nine walks in 17 2-3 innings.

    People that do that kind of thing crack me up. My brother got angry the other day and punched his laptop screen...broke it, now he's out 3 or 4 hundred bucks. Fat lot of good it does to punch inanimate objects in anger.

    It was reported yesterday Isringhausen would be placed on the DL with a phantom injury.

    Sometimes you just have to show those machines who's boss. Unfortunately, it often turns out to be the machine.

    Maybe Jason was angry because Dwight slept with Angela.

    Hmmmm. No.

    I DO remember someone breaking his hand punching the floor after Sonny beat him at Sega.

    Witty signature.

    Didn't he pull a similar stunt earlier in his areer with the Mets while he was rehabbing an injury?
    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.

    I hope he isn't getting paid while on the DL. But he probably is.
