He never made it back this year and now Kendrys Morales is out for all of 2011.

Kendrys Morales to have surgery, miss entire season


    ANAHEIM -- Kendrys Morales' much-anticipated return to the Angels will have to wait until next year.

    Morales announced Wednesday that he has elected to have a second operation on his injured left ankle, which he broke last May 29 while jumping on home plate in celebration of a walk-off home run. The surgery will force Morales to miss the rest of the season.

He was celebrating a home run.

He was celebrating a home run. And now he's out for TWO seasons...because he was CELEBRATING A GAME-WINNING HOME RUN!!! Seriously, will there ever be another story like this in our lifetime? I can't wrap my head around this. It's just...utterly insane!

Who was the NFL player who blew out his knee after jumping up after nibbling an interception? That was always the oddest injury i could remember. But yeah that crowd around home plate and jumping up and down has to be pretty odd as well.

Not sure if it's the one you're thinking of, but Bill Gramática injured his knee after celebrating a successful field goal.

As for odd injuries, Wendell Davis and Dan Marino come to mind. Davis had a notorious injury at Veterans Stadium in Philly where he tore both patellar tendons while running a route. Marino tore his Achilles at Cleveland in '93, he was untouched on the play.

Gotta agree with the OP though - to be injured this badly on a home plate celebration is just crazy.

I said it when it originally happened. One of this teammates awkwardly pulled him down when he was in midair. That's the asshole that should get the blame for all this.

The only bright spot in all of this is that our younger guys seem to be stepping up. Trumbo and Bourjos are playing pretty well given their inexperience.

If something could finally be done with the bullpen, though...

Yeah, no professional baseball team should ever lose like this...

Yeah, I was listening to the game last night. That loss made no sense. But again, the bright spot is that Chatwood seems to have calmed down from his shaky season start. I like that this fairly young team is holding its own right now.

Jepsen needs to go, though. And want to like Rodney, but I think he needs to go, too. That Wells trade is looking worse and worse as time goes on.

I think the fact that Dershowitz had never prosecuted a case before hurt his ability to get things done. If they ponied up enough cash they could've gotten a baseball fan with some prosecutorial experience: Rudy Guiliani. THAT would have been fascinating.
