Bryce Brentz Gets Lucky, Thumbs Nose At Logic

Sox outfield prospect Bryce Brentz claims that he shot himself in the leg while cleaning his pistol. From Nick Cafardo in The Globe; “It was just one of those things that happened that will never happen again. I have to be more careful.” – Brentz.

Fortunately for Brentz after doing something so utterly stupid, he is expected to be fine. Maybe it isn’t likely it will happen to Brentz again, but he can’t make the “never” guarantee. Hopefully he will decide that getting paid a fortune to play baseball and be counted among the living is enough of a perk to reconsider his position on what role guns play in his life.

  • What a twit. I had a distant cousin who died from cleaning his gun. Man.

    Also: outfield depth continues its nosedive after Kalish getting surgery (I know he’s expected to fully recover, but it sounds like the franchise is not inclined to give him a shot in the immediate future).

  • “he” meaning Brentz.

  • > give him a shot

    No pun intended. If he is as savvy around guns as he claims, the idea that he was cleaning a loaded weapon really pisses me off. Something is wrong with this story, and the Sox know it.

  • Please explain to me how someone who claims to have experience with guns would leave a bullet in the chamber while cleaning a gun?
    I don’t get it.

  • The Bruins are clearly a better team…gave them a good run after playing on the Island last night.

    At least in the physicality department, we have evened the score. Just ask Campbell’s face after Kaleta rearranged it.

    1-1…3 more to play.

  • Even from the Bruins radio accout it sounded like Kaleta easily got the best of Campbell.
    Scott … Kaleta … wow, krueg, you guys have some thugs.

  • Just trying to keep up with the Bruins…

  • Of course the Bruins radio probably left out the part where Campbell jumped Kaleta after a clean hit, started punching him even though Kaleta didn’t even want to fight…

  • No, they didn’t. Goucher and Beers agreed that Campbell should have gotten an instigator.
