Great Moments in Selflessness

Some players talk a big game about doing anything to help the team, but pitcher John Bale (0-3, 7.63 ERA) truly goes all out in an effort to make the Royals better:
Royals left-hander John Bale won’t be returning to active duty any time soon after breaking his pitching hand Friday night by punching a door at the team’s downtown hotel.

Bale apparently was frustrated by his slow recovery from a fatigued left shoulder. He returned early Sunday to Kansas City and is scheduled to undergo further examination Monday by club physicians.

If only Brett Tomko showed such dedication -- by, say, donating his right arm to science -- the Royals' team ERA wouldn't be third to last in the AL.
