Both players are out of the Twins' lineup Friday night due to "whiplash and headaches," (Bollinger) but are reportedly hopeful to returning Saturday. Span did say that some of his migraines, stemming from a concussion earlier this season, have returned (Bollinger).
Those who pictured some racing scene where both cars were battered beyond recognition like in "Days of Thunder" will be disappointed. Span estimated he was only going about 10 miles per hour, though Valencia joked he felt like he was "hit by a bomb." (Bollinger)
What kind of negative karma did the Twins gather for this season? Only three players have appeared in more than 100 games, there was a near locker-room-wide flu outbreak earlier this season and they've collectively run the gauntlet on nearly every injury imaginable.
Fortunately, the season ends in five days, so the misery will soon be over.
