Lucroy's broken hand has Milwaukee talking
Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy is on the 15-day disabled list and, according to the team's assistant general manager Gord Ash, will miss 4-6 weeks.
I don't know Lucroy, and I have no reason not to believe that his wife dropped a suitcase on his hand thus causing the injury that placed him on the D.L.
I have seen him speak, and he seemed like a good guy and even joked about his wife at a Brewers season ticket holder event last year.
Yet, after he told MLB.com's Adam McCalvy that he's out with what the team is calling a "boxer's fracture" in his right hand, most fans seem to be suspicious of the cause of the injury.
Lucroy told McCalvy that he was "reaching under his hotel room bed Sunday night for a lost sock when his wife shifted a suitcase, (and it) fell on his hand."
Seems plausible, I guess. And, frankly, it really doesn't matter how it happened. It happened, let's move on.
Yet fans always want and demand answers. There's a bit of a rub with sports information. Teams are private entities, tight knit and very focused. But, they are public bodies, too, with massive appeal, exposure and community interests. Thus, fans seem to think that they should know the whole story always.
So, when Lucroy tells us the reason for his freak injury should we believe him? And, just because it's a somewhat odd reason does it make your fan radar go up?
I'm not sure, but I do know that people are talking about it. So, step up to the plate and let loose on your thoughts about Lucroy's injury.
Come on Lucroy....tell the truth...or at least come up with a better excuse. Man up.
