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.

I believe you're right about Maddux having the record. Jim Kaat had the record for many years, but he only had 16. Heckuva trivia question that McCormick was the only giant to win a Cy Young until now. Hard to believe Juan Marichal never took one.
