There’s a good chance you’ve seen this YouTube video, since it’s had close to 450 million views!
I was reminded of it at the Phils – Pirates game yesterday, when Freddy Galvis went down after a hard foul off his foot, and Charlie came out to check on the damage.
Thankfully the reports are encouraging out of Clearwater that Freddy’s foot is fine. I still don’t get the reluctance to X-ray his foot just to play safe. After all, do you really expect a 22 year-old being give the chance of a lifetime to insist that he wants an X-ray because he’s not sure he’s fine? Let’s hope so, because we know that Chase Utley is going to be stuck in Charlie’s dugout for quite some time. And that is pain enough.
