Giancarlo beaned in wrist

Postby Disco » Sun Mar 11, 2012 2:03 pm

Taken to a hospital for X-Rays. Stanton said "It's not too bad right now. It seemed like initially that my hand locked up. We'll see tomorrow. It'll be nice and fat"

Everybody cross their fingers for Giancarlo!

He was rolling it around in the dugout. I'd be shocked if it was worse than a sprain.

This thread is funny. First off, you get "beaned" in the head. That's what getting "beaned" means. Can't really get "beaned in the wrist"...doesn't make much sense. Second, you can't "sprain" a wrist (or anything else) from getting hit by a baseball. :lol:


Hopefully the guys fine. I like watching him hit.

I'm glad we could brighten your day.
A wrist sprain is a common injury for all sorts of athletes. All it takes is a momentary loss of balance. As you slip, you automatically stick your hand out to break your fall. But once your hand hits the ground, the force of impact bends it back toward your forearm. This can stretch the ligaments that connect the wrist and hand bones a little too far. The result is tiny tears or -- even worse -- a complete break to the ligament.

While falls cause of a lot of wrist sprains, you can also get them by:

being hit in the wrist.
exerting extreme pressure on the wrist or twisting it.

Seriously?? We use urban dictionary for word definitions these days? Has it really come to that??

If you had actually used a REAL source, like dictionary.com, you would read this:

8. Slang.  to hit on the head, especially with a baseball.
- interjection

But hey...that's real cute...urban dictionary, lol.

Oh and also...yes you can sprain your wrist from "getting hit". But the object has to have enough force to physically bend the wrist back. I don't know about you, but I've NEVER heard of someone "spraining their wrist" on a HBP. Would love for you to come up with an example of that actually happening, though.
