BPF sheds chooch-sized tear

Passing along information for those of you that don't know: BPF favorite, catcher Carlos Ruiz, suffered a broken leg in a home-plate collision with Mike Kinkade during Friday night's loss to Buffalo.

Strangely enough, the collision represented an weird, cosmic clashing of two players my stepfather and I like for odd reasons: Ruiz and Kinkade.

Ruiz is neat because he's tiny, unheralded, but can also slug and throw out base runners. Martin likes Kinkade because he spent the good part of a Japanese baseball vacation with Kinkade's family, who were visiting the former Dodger utility man while he played for the Hanshin Tigers last season.
