Matt Treanor’s Got Nards!
Posted by at 10:51 pm ET 6 Comments

Towards the end of the Marlins 7-3 drubbing of the Phillies, we got a little revenge.

On Kevin Gregggg’s first pitch of the ninth, Marlins catcher Matt Treanor was set up for a nice inside fastball. Kevin, obviously unaware of the catcher’s complex signs, threw a curveball in the dirt. This crossed-up the Florida backstop, and when he tried to adjust — it nipped the tip of his glove, bounced off the dirt, and hit him directly in the balls.

The cringe-worthy evidence:

    I thought football players were the ones who didn’t wear cups. What a cringeworthy way of discovering I was wrong.

    Oh, Treanor’s wearing a cup allright. But a pitch directly to the hoohaw, cup or not, is sickening.

    No catcher ever EVER gets back there without a cup. They’d sooner catch with no mask than no cup.

    Hats off for the Monster Squad reference!!!! Although ugly, Treanor is no wolf man…
