And it's the "cool" kind of fun, not the "homoerotic" kind a la the Carmines of the last two years.

Come on, you have to have fun. You do not want a team that hates going out to play. What are they there for then? Just for the money? That is what kills professional sports, those people in it only for the money. Plus, all work and no play makes the White Sox a dull team.

:rolleyes: Give him a break. He was having a little fun and entertaining the fans that were getting soaked out there. I have no problem with what he did. I thought it was funny to see him do that.

but i do know what you mean about injuries. slip 'n slide injuries are serious, not a laughing matter. i remember when i was little and we'd set that slip 'n slide up in the yard, and there'd be a pebble under it, you'd jump, slide, hit the bump, then, ow, you'd hit that pebble. oh man that would leave a mark. i'd try to sit out of gym class, but mrs. dublin never let me.

Actually, didn't a player get injured about 10 or 15 years ago doing the same thing Buehrle did? It's sort of a legitimate point. I love seeing the guys have fun, but I'd hate to see a freak injury happen.

I'll forget I read this post. That is a terrible attitude. You think these guys are the 200 lb. pieces of glass. The media holds this same idiotic stance.

We should put him in bubble wrap and place him gently inside his mother's uterus until his start comes around.




Buehrle pulled the same stunt in Cleveland earlier this year.

"They can't really stop me from having fun," he said.

I cant ever remember getting hurt on the slip and slide, the only time I had any bad luck with it, was when there was a rock under the slide about halfway to the end, that hurt like hell.



I laughed when I saw Mark sliding through the water on the ESPNews highlights, got me to thinking...Does he do the slip and slide everytime it rains before a game?? Because I know I have seen him do it twice this year.

and yeah I agree with the ones who said that it looks like tons of fun.

AP-White sox placed Mark Buehrle on the disabled list today with a broken arm and torn tendons in his left arm. Reports state he was sliding on the tarp during a rain delay, only to find out it had not rained yet and was completely dry, he also suffered severe 2nd and 3rd degree burns. David spade and the makers of slip and slide were unavailable for comment

This isn't the first time something like this has been done on the baseball diamond. But I also feel it wouldn't be so Laugh Out Loud funny if Mark Buehrle had injured himself.

If I'm not mistaken something similar happened during the 1st Night Game at Wrigley Field. The game got washed out after 3 1/2 innings due to a large rain storm, and Greg Maddux and Les Lancaster were sliding across the wet tarp to "entertain" the fans during the rain delay.

Rick Dempsey and Sammy Stewart of the Orioles also did a memorable rain delay theatre re-enacting the famous "Robin Yount-Jim Palmer" show down from the final day of the '82 season when the Brewers won the pennant.

It was funny stuff, and it's been done before. But all it takes is one "slip up" to twist a knee or jam a shoulder sliding. With the millions of dollars at stake, it's NOT worth the risk.....IMO.

You're asking for a bit of a double-standard. So what you're saying is...you want Mark to be a gutsy, carefree individual on the mound, while being gutless and careful away from it? With the good comes the bad, and Mark Buehrle is simply going to use a tarp as a slip and slide for comedic purposes if he sees fit. It may be a slightly risky scenario, but if he didn't have that carefree personality of his, we wouldn't care if he did this because he never would have made it past the minors in the first place.

No meanfish, no double standard here.

I'm only saying it's NOT worth risking having Buehrle out with an injury for a significant amount of time doing something foolish or clowning around.

Remember how upset people were in March when it was reported Buehrle injured his foot SHAGGING FLY BALLS??

How many people came on these very boards asking the question.....WHY IS OUR ACE EVEN PRACTICING SHAGGING FLIES???

The sliding across the tarp thing has been done already, there's no need to do it any longer. Especially by the best pitcher on the team.......

INSURANCE-COMPARATIVE FAULT IN BAD FAITH ACTION BY INSURED
In 1987 thirty five year-old Michael Hubert jumped headfirst onto his Wisconsin neighbor's backyard water slide toy known as a Slip 'N Slide and broke his neck, rendering him a partial quadriplegic.

http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml93/93076.html

PRODUCT: Approximately 9 million WHAM-O backyard water slides, manufactured by Kransco and WHAM-O. The water slides were sold nationwide from 1961 through February 1992 under the following names: Slip 'N Slide, Super Slip 'N Slide, Slip 'N Splash, White Water Rapids, Fast Track Racers, and Wet Banana.

PROBLEM: The WHAM-O slides are designed for use by children only. Use by adults and teens has the potential to result in neck injury and paralysis. Because of their weight and height, adults and teenagers who dive onto the water slide may hit and abruptly stop in such a way that could cause permanent spinal cord injury, resulting in quadriplegia or paraplegia. The slider's forward momentum drives the body into the neck and compresses the spinal cord. Kransco reports that seven adults and a 13-year-old teenager suffered neck injuries or paralysis while using WHAM-O slides.

Slip sliding

Staff ace Mark Buehrle tooksome headfirst belly flops on the soaked tarp during the pregame rain delay, much to the surprise of Guillen.

"Oh, my God, he did?" asked Guillen when he was told. "I don't think it's a real funny thing when he's my ace."

"I think if I hurt myself," Buehrle said, "a lot of stuff would go down."

Not really Jurr....the question was whether he had heard of a "slip & slide injury". And the answer is unequivocally Yes. There have been some, and I just wanted to show some proof for documentation.

I'm not saying Buehrle was in that type of danger, but given how many "freak" injuries have happened in sports, guys end up on the DL sleeping on their eye the wrong way.....pitchers injuring their wrists flicking sunflower seeds, and falling off stationary bicycles.....

It's not out of the realm of possibility that Buehrle could've jammed his shoulder or gotten injured doing something as foolish as he did yesterday.

Baseball is a team game (that's what I was taught) and you don't put your own needs ahead of what's best for the team.

Where would the Sox be without Mark Buehrle?? Up a creek without a paddle, that's where.

If that was the case, then professional athletes (who, by the way, usually have bodies that can handle a great deal of stress), wouldn't be able to do ANYTHING on their time off.

No swimming, no diving, no roller coasters (that whiplash will end your career!), no bumper cars, NOTHING!

I can understand contract stipulations that tell a guy he can't play pickup basketball or motorcycle riding, because those are high risk ventures.

But, you can't tell a guy he can't have fun because some freak injury might happen.

Agreed. Freak injuries are named that because you can't predict when they'll happen or how often they'll happen. That's why they're freak injuries. Should a player not be allowed to run to the living room TV to watch someone bat, walk up or down stairs, or sneeze? Buehrle obviously understands what would happen if he did get hurt, and he believes that he is safe enought to perform this stunt. He (as well as I) believe that the increase in clubhouse chemistry far outweighs any risk of injury.

Thank you! And while I agree with you whole-heartedly, technically this wasn't "time off" - at the field he was "at work." It is up to his bosses to tell him what he can and can't do.

As for chance of injury, there is no comparison between a cheesy Wham-o toy and a full sized major league baseball tarp.

Ya, you guessed, he jumped up (!) and in the process of getting the paper, his wedding ring got caught on the edge of gutter = 3 months DL. I think it was Melton, maybe Bart Johnson. Cy Acosta got a cataract from having long hair repeatedly itching in his eye = goodbye control. Think about this Mark! Dont be stupid!

Those are all good points Jurr, but...... there has already been a precedent of a player getting hurt doing the sliding across the tarp routine. Les Lancaster of the Cubs had it happen to him during the rain delay during the 1st Cubs Night Game.

I say that is NOT a risk I'd be willing to take....especially with my best pitcher. Also this was not the first time Mark Buehrle has done this.


In the end however the only people whose opinion REALLY count in this matter is Ozzie Guillen's and Jerry Reinsdorf's. JR signs the checks, I wonder what he thinks of Buehrle's antics??
