Joba Chamberlain lost so much blood Thursday when he hurt his ankle while playing with his son that there initially was concern for his life, a Yankees’ source said … When Chamberlain was hurt, bone was sticking out of his ankle and he was bleeding profusely, a team source said. Paramedics were called and Chamberlain was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

This is just awful. And the compound nature of the injury means that he is at risk for infection and, by virtue of facing the possibility of multiple surgeries, the odds of complications increase.


ouch!

Sounds even worse than the injuries suffered by Buster Posey and Kendall.


ouch!

Guess MLBers should stay away from those trampolines or other playground apparatus

a compound fracture, with loss of blood -- those are injuries you see on battlefields during wars & stuff, or as a result of a high-speed crashes -- how injuries like that can be sustained while playing with your 4 year old son...

Joba must have gotten mad about something and kicked something in a fit of rage, exactly in the worst possible way -- if his injuries are as described in press reports, those did not come about by accident or by playing with his son...

as usual, the mainstream press knowing where its bread is buttered

get well soon Joba

I disagree. Trampolines can be as dangerous as chain saws when accidents happen and they have a long history of serious injuries. I would never allow a child on one. And if my multimillion dollar contract depended on being uninjured I would never get on one. It's just stupid.

"as dangerous as chain saws"?????????????
guess they must make 'em differently nowadays -- no disrespect, just never heard of the long history of serious accidents you mention about tramps...
All good brother, I know ya don't mean that literally
it's hard to believe you could buy a trampoline on which a professional athlete, much less a kid, could carve, then bust himself up that bad...it must have had protruding pieces of sharp metal that Joba didn't notice prior to trying trampolining...

Not as dangerous as chainsaws; but dangerous. When I was a kid there were trampoline parks all over. Broken necks and paraplegia/quadraplegia pretty much ended the practice. There was still one on cape cod 10 years ago.

Needed my house re-assesssed for insurance purposes about a decade ago. We had a trampouline. One week later received a letter that if it wasn't removed they would drop us immediately. They had no problem with a diving board in our pool, however

Actually, I do mean it literally. Do a little research and you'll see for yourself. In any event, he got himself a serious injury in a stupid way.

Bouncing up and down on a trampoline...
I should feel lucky I guess -- hadn't been aware of their injury-filled history -- to a point where they're not allowed unless you want to pay huge insurance costs, as emr said -- totally didn't know they were considered that lethal -- trampolines -- damn...

When I try to picture how a pro athlete could come away with injuries that severe, as a result of playing with his son on a trampoline -- 1, it doesn't compute, 2, it could only happen to an MLB player

1 - Wasn't at a higher cost; it was just a no.

2 - That is why they are called accidents.

It was at the cost of your tramp tho
no matter what, Joba has a bad injury & I hope he recovers fully from it

as we all learned in high school no tramp is without a cost

and best wishes to Joba. What an electric impact in 07; still remember watching the "midge disaster" in a bar on Cape Cod.

Yea, NOT happy about the Joba situation. And yes, it is entirely possible to get that injury on a trampoline, escpecially for a big guy like he is.
Why the hell he would rish his career on that thing I have no idea.
I have a feeling he is done.
I hope I am wrong

Just saw on ESPN that he is in the hospital and will be out at least six weeks. Seems like a very conservative estimate.

Entirely possible FOR AN MLBer to get that injury --
trampolines have been bounced upon for centuries -- if they are so dangerous that a coordinated, professional athlete could become disabled from them, as Joba apparently almost did, they would have been outlawed a long time ago

leave it to modern-day insurance geeks and multimillionaire baseball clods to make them seem dangerous -- well they're Not, they're fun -- get well soon, Mr. Chamberlain

Don't forget Jason Kendall came back from one of the most gruesome injuries I've ever seen and still was able to catch. Not as bad as a compound fracture, but still one of the worst ankle injuries I've ever seen.

Kendall is without doubt one of the toughest SOBs to play in the Major Leagues.

Tigers vs Nationals on FSD at 6:05 tonight. Leyland says he'll play regular starters for 7 innings.

Great Lee! The weather was beautiful the entire time. Got to 6 games. Had a great time with my 2 grandsons ages 12 & 14. Got to see Fielder hit a homer and, even better, run out a triple. Met a few players and Dave Dombrowski. Didn't see anyone who could identify 1968 autographs. I hadn't been in 20 years. The stadium has about doubled in that time, holds a bit over 10,000 now. Players aren't as accessable as they used to be, not because of security but because most think they're rock stars.
