Bunions 1, Chipper 0

Filed under: Breaking News,Chipper

Chipper just got taken out of our game against the Cardinals – something happened with his right front foot during his first at-bat. It probably has something to do with the bunions that nearly defeated him last year.

Ugh. Hopefully it won’t take long to correct. To be honest, I’ve never quite understood the story behind Chipper’s feet. I suppose I could if I did a little research on bunions, but I’d rather allow them to remain somewhat mysterious, I think.

Orr has come in to play for him, which feels like the worst omen possible.

Update: It’s actually a “mild sprain” of his left ankle, and he’s now listed as day-to-day. I think this is good news? Better than the lingering bunions, I hope.
