Melvin spent three hours in the emergency room Wednesday night after he was stung by an Arizona bark scorpion inside his spring training condominium.

Hope he has insurance. Otherwise, it's $83,000 out of his pocket.

I guess its bite is worse than ... Oh never mind.

I'm glad that was a still picture.

So when can we expect him to become a supervillain?

I don't think I'd try to pick that up with a kleenex.

That's what Melvin gets for displeasing SPECTRE.

Which would you prefer, being stung by a scorpion or stuck with ARod's contract?

So you're saying that Melvin was bitten by the injury arachnid?

The scorpion was a drone developed with Florida tax dollars.

Nope. Not acceptable. I propose a fatwa on bark scorpions.

Melvin needs to suck it up. Do you know how many times I was stung by giant ####### radscorpions in Fallout: New Vegas? Not only did I persevere, I won the Mojave Wasteland for the NCR.

Get back to the office, Doug.
