The media circus over this one possibly broken, possibly jammed finger is amazing. Joy of Sox is keeping track of the individual, mostly conflicting, media reports. I don't remember it being anything like this back in 2002 when Manny broke his finger, which honestly was a much bigger deal. The amount of hysteria from the sports media this seem like, I dunno, the Sinking of the Lusitania or something.
And with that Sinking of the Lusitania reference, I have exhausted my entire knowledge of world history from high school. Oh yeah, except for some stuff about the Fertile Crescent. And the Magna Carta. But after those things came the Sinking of the Lusitania. And then Princess Di got married, and that brings us to today, the day which Coco Crisp may or may not have broken his finger.
