Jays' Cecil loses battle with a blender

Brett CecilBy C. Trent Rosecrans

You know how blenders work?

They have a very sharp blade that spins very quickly, chipping up anything in its path -- and it doesn't have to even be moving to cut something. I've got to admit I once learned this the hard way, so did Blue Jays' left-hander Brett Cecil. Cecil has been scratched from his start Friday night against the Yankees after cutting his left index finger while cleaning out a blender. Right-hander Dustin McGowan will start in his place. McGowan was scheduled to start Sunday, with Brandon Marrow moving up to take that start.

Cecil is still listed as day-to-day, so his season hasn't been ended like fellow lefty Jeremy Affeldt, who had his season ended when he cut himself trying to separate frozen hamburger patties (which, it should be noted, you should never use -- you can always get fresh ground meat, get it from the butcher and hand-form it, just a little salt and pepper and you're golden).

Oh well, I guess it's just another case of lefties being a little… different and a bit clumsy, which I say as a lefty myself.

Because you're immune to making common human errors? I love how people jump on athletes when a freak accident happens. I once couldn't play guitar (I'm a musician for a living) for a week because of a laundry injury. That's right.. laundry. I threw the clothes in the dryer and accidently wacked my finger on the opening to the dryer and it swelled up like a balloon for about 5 days. Does that make me an idiot? I'm willing to bet you've done a lot stupider things than that. Cecil is human just like you.

I assume the blender was switched off when he was cleaning it??

hehe Remember Bret Barberie missed a few games in the early 90's for rubbing chili juice in his eye? Classic!
