The image at right is from after last night’s no-hitter, in which Evan Longoria gave Matt Garza the ceremonial shaving cream pie-to-the-face. And this morning we read this (via Big League Stew)…

We are through the looking glass on these postgame celebrations, people. We have our first injury caused by someone giving a shaving-cream pie to the face.
Florida Marlins outfielder Chris Coghlan tore the meniscus in his left knee, and is headed for the disabled list after he face-pied teammate Wes Helms during a TV interview Sunday.

By the Beard of Zeus! We just had a heart attack in our butt.

The Rays want to keep doing the shaving pie tradition? Fine. But good lord, can we at least assign it to Willy Aybar or maybe Lance Cormier?

    Cork, I had a very similar thought last night -- that it was the first time I missed Navarro, because here was one thing he did well, and with him I never worried about the accompanying loss of dignity. Never even thought about the injury possibilities, of course, until reading about Coughlan.

    I guess we could bring back Jonny Gomes and then make him both the designated fighter and the designated shaving cream pie guy.

    We should have an online poll. I vote for Choate. I definitely believe he has all the necessary skills to be our official shaving cream guy.

    Or Shields
