Well, it is with a sad emoticon that I report the latest news on Mets outfield Moises Alou. It looks like he’s done for the season with a tear in in hamstring, and it may be a career for the 42-year old outfielder.
Everybody knows what this means: Major League baseball will be without its only member of the I-pee-on-my-own-hands-to-prevent-the-callouses-and-because-it-feels-good club.
OK, maybe he doesn’t like the way it feels, but Alou revealed awhile back that he does, indeed, pee on his own hands and swears by the “treatment.” After all this time it’s still unbelievable to me. Honestly, who golden showers his own hands? Gah.
Then again, he’s a career .303 hitter. Who am I to judge?
