Kluber career tragically over, MONARCH BOSS in very, very hot water
TORONTO (July 29) -- Without any warning, Toronto pitcher Corey Kluber fell on his back, his head bouncing off the pitching rubber. "I was in tears by the time I got to him," said Toronto doctor Alfred W. Tracy. "I knew something terrible happened to Corey." Joining him over the fallen pitcher, Monarch owner Andrew "The Rat" Villalba. His hands by his sides (see photo), he realized his world just crashed and burned. After Kluber was removed on a stretcher and before the ambulance arrived at Kingman Hospital, Mr. Villalba and manager Tony LaRussa fueded in public. "Why didn't you pinch-hit for Corey in the 7th?" demanded Mr. Villalba. "We were down 7-1 (to Indianapolis). You had him pitching in the 8th! That was dumb-dumb, Tony." LaRussa didn't say a word. ¶ Kluber joins Paul O'Neill and Dean Palmer as the only players whose careers were cut short to injury. ¶ Kluber is in stable condition.
