I had no idea that Don Baylor had had cancer.  I hope this freak leg break isn't related to it, and he recovers quickly.

 

Also, Vlad finally retired. (he couldn't even get the ball to the plate from the grass in front of the mound)

 

The video is disturbing:

Such an odd scene. Hopefully he comes back fully healed and has no further issues with the leg.

I saw that last night, so I didn't watch it again here, but it was gruesome. it looked like his leg turned into paper mache.
