After seeing the news in today's A.M. Hot Clicks that Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan tore his knee while shoving a pie in the face of teammate Wes Helms Sunday, Texas Rangers pitcher and friend of Hot Clicks, C.J. Wilson, sent me a Tweet saying that "we need a tally on all the (Bill) Gramatica-type DL stints for baseballers." Since we aim to please here, the list of bizarre baseball injuries that have taken place in 2010 is below. (On a side note, since Wilson inspired this lead item, I left out the time in April he missed a start because of food poisoning after eating some bad chicken.)

-- Feb. 12: Brad Bergesen, Orioles: Strained his shoulder filming a TV commercial for the team.

-- May 29: Kendry Morales, Angels: Broke his leg celebrating a walk-off home run at home plate.

-- June 30: Luke Scott, Orioles: Pulled his hamstring during a home-run trot.

-- July 1: Geoff Blum, Astros: Injured his elbow while putting on his shirt.

-- July 14: Russell Branyan, Mariners: Injured his toe when a hotel room table fell on it.

-- July 14: Mike Pelfrey, Mets: Missed a start as a result of stiff neck from a plane ride after the All-Star break.

-- July 15: Mat Latos, Padres: Strains his left side while trying to hold back a sneeze.

-- July 18: David Freese, Cardinals: Fractured his left big toe after dropping a weight on it -- while already on the DL.

-- July 26: Chris Coghlan, Marlins: Tears meniscus in his left knee while shoving a shaving cream pie in the face of a teammate.

Lovely Lady Of The Day
Holly Kishere
Yesterday's "Holly" mystery has been solved. Despite tons of e-mails from you guys giving me wrong information (many of you said it was Holly Webber, others said Holly Valance, and a few said "Holly" was someone named Victoria Pendleton) I was able to get the real answer from Competitor.com, the site that features her Tour de France videos. Her name is Holly Kishere and she's a San Diego model. She remains a mystery, though, because there aren't any recent pics of her on the Web, and she looks very different from her days as an IFL ring girl.
