Kevin Brown on Line 5

Jeez, at least the surly New Yorker was considerate enough to time his idiocy so he’d be healthy for the playoffs…

from ESPN:

HOUSTON — St. Louis right-hander Julian Tavarez broke his left hand during a dugout tantrum in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series, and it was uncertain Monday when the reliever would pitch again. The excitable Tavarez tried to trash the bench shortly after giving up a tiebreaking home run to Carlos Beltran in the seventh inning of Houston’s 6-5 win Sunday. Tavarez’s on-field anger turned into a phone-punching tantrum that might leave St. Louis a pitcher short for the rest of the NLCS. Before Game 5, the Cardinals told ESPN that Tavarez broke three bones in his left hand. “He punched the phone, so that’s when it happened,” manager Tony La Russa said. “I don’t know if he’ll pitch tonight, but he’ll pitch in the series.”
