Another Thing Me and Joel Zumaya Have In Common

Aside from both being partially responsible for the Detroit Tigers’ world series run is that we’re both big fans of Guitar HeroThe Detroit Free Press reported that the inflammation that kept Zumaya out of three American League championship games was caused by this infamous game.  Apparently, the Tigers’ athletic trainer noticed that Zumaya’s pain was more consistent with what a guitarist’s might feel and properly diagnosed that the problem was not pitching, it was strumming. 

Tigers’ management has asked that Zumaya not play the game, and he has complied.  A sad day for Joel, but a happy one for Tigers’ fans.
