Phillies prospect breaks rib getting off couch
Time for another edition of wacky sports injuries. There was a report yesterday morning that Philadelphia Phillies prospect Mitch Walding broke a rib on his left side while getting off the couch. That’s right he was getting off the couch and snap went his rib. The report also says that Walding already had a stress fracture of his rib so this could have just finished the break.
Now I must ask how comfortable are those couches at Lakewood that someone broke a rib getting off it? That had to take a lot of effort to break which means they must be some pretty soft couches.
