Today's athletes are a bunch of pantie-wastes! There are some tough guys still in the sport (J.D. Drew, Ken Griffey Jr., Mark Prior, and Kerry Wood...just joking), but for the most part MLB players as a collective group are whiny bitches. A blister, a stubbed toe, an ingrown hair, split ends, jock itch, sneezing fits, hemorrhoids, and the list of wussy excuses for missing practice and more importantly games goes on and on. I understand each player is an investment and in order to produce they need to be healthy. But c'mon, starters used to pitch 300 innings a year, now if you squeeze 25 starts and 180 innings out of a guy he's considered reliable. A severed head is a real injury and that still wouldn't have kept Cal Ripken out of the ball game.
