Celebration Curse

Celebratory injuries in baseball seem to be getting out of hand, but this one might take the cake…err pie. Marlins left fielder Chris Coghlan celebrated their 11th inning victory Sunday over the Braves by slamming a pie in the face of teammate Wes Helms who hit the walk-off single. Somehow Coghlan landed clumsily after the pie caper and is now on the DL for a torn meniscus in his knee. If it is determined that Coghlan needs surgery he could be out up to 8 weeks for being a total clutz. You couple this with Kendry Morales shattering his leg after a walk-off grand slam and UCLA second baseman Tyler Rahmatulla breaking his wrist after celebrating a Super Regional victory (both season ending injuries) and you have an issue that should probably be addressed.
