MLB notebook: Orioles’ Cobb (groin) lands on IL

The Baltimore Orioles placed scheduled Opening Day starter Alex Cobb on the 10-day injured list with a strained right groin, the club announced Monday.

Cobb departed his final spring training outing after one inning Saturday due to the injury.

Fellow right-hander Andrew Cashner likely will draw the season-opening assignment for Baltimore on Thursday against the host New York Yankees.

The Cleveland Spiders could use a good challenge….

Bit of a pity, as I was hoping Cobb could be decent to good during the 1st half and then get traded away from the Orioles (both for his sanity and so that the Orioles can actually get a half-way decent prospect that will be of use to their rebuild).

This crap needs to be nipped in the bud.

'cobb groin' sounds vaguely obscene

This can't be good for their pennant hopes.

'cobb groin' sounds vaguely obscene
'Cobb groin lands' sounds painful.

especially landing on Illinois

Eh, Illinois would actually be one of the best states to groin land on, all things considered. Your odds of hitting the Sears or the Hancock are infinitesimal. There is no topography, so you wouldn't be landing on a mountain. Most of the state is flat farmland, which would presumably be softer and more comfortable, relatively speaking, than landing on a city.

I guess maybe a state with a lot of lakes, but then you've got a whole other set of issues.

Strangely, if you're dropping from height, landing on water is worse than land. The people who have survived sky diving accidents tend to land on marshy areas. Apparently, flat water is as hard as concrete from any meaningful height.

How come astronauts land in the water then?

Because they're in large steel containers and have parachutes that work.
   12. PreservedFish Posted: March 27, 2019 at 04:19 PM (#5825851)
Oh yeah, the parachute. For some reason I was just imagining them falling. I guess they'd all die if that happened. Well, unless they landed on some marsh, maybe.

In France, pigs say "groin groin" instead of "oink oink"

That's what the ValuJet pilot thought!

Also, they're not groin landing.

So I guess the best state on which to groin land would be, what, Florida? Louisiana? I would go for the latter - groin land on the bayou, then get a ride to New Orleans with a hell of a story to tell.

The last MLB player to get a cobb/groin injury was Shoeless Joe, when he mis-timed his magical appearance out of the corn at the Field of Dreams.

Russian spacecraft land on land. Groins are also involved during launch, though not landing.

Russian spacecraft land on land.
In Soviet Russia, land land on RUSSIAN SPACECRAFT!!



Sorry, had to be done.

Couldn't we all just agree to use INJ for the injured list? I agree that changing the name of the DL is strange at the moment. But, no reason to keep it other than we're used to it as well. injured list is more descriptive anyhow.

As for Russian spacecraft landing on land, yes they do. I believe the first guy to land on land became about as thick as tinfoil too. They got better at it after that.
