I can't blame Kendry for getting excited. I can, however, blame the knucklehead teammate of his (couldn't ID him on the replay) who grabbed him by the head and pushed him down when he was in mid-air, causing him to land awkwardly.

It's a freak injury, and I hope the Angels can step it up while he is out.
The same thing happened a few years ago to a Padre minor leaguer. Tagg Bozeid hit a walk-off homer in AA then blew his knee out in the celebration at the plate. It ended his season, and he never reached the majors.

The entire issue of the "phantom tag" has pissed me off for years that the umpires just decide to give them a "good effort" out. If you're going to touch the bag, you damn well better make sure you do and the ump sees it.
