The Phillies are having a rough week on the West Coast. They've dropped four straight games to bad teams in the Padres and Giants, but they haven't been quite as unlucky as CSN Phillies insider Jim Salisbury, who last night suffered an unfortunate injury that we can laugh at only because he's OK.
While the Giants were taking infield practice prior to Friday's game at AT&T Park, Salisbury was being interviewed outside the visiting dugout by a San Francisco reporter. Shortstop Brandon Crawford, a Gold Glover last season, uncorked a throw to first base that sailed a bit wide, bounced, and ... hit Jim in the worst of all spots.
It's really a video you need to see for yourself (up above).
Crawford clearly felt enough guilt to send Salisbury a parting gift.
Make sure to ice today, Jim.
