Chicago Cubs outfielder Marlon Byrd recently took to his blog (The Byrd's Nest) and promised to be back following the devastating pitch he took the face over the weekend.
Thanks for the get well messages. I’ll be OK and come back playing as hard as ever! – Marlon
Two things pop to mind after being reminded of Byrd's injury.
One...I never want to see the words "multiple facial fractures" pop up anywhere ever.
And two...if I'm Boston Red Sox pitcher Alfredo Aceves, I'm a little more hesitant opening my door for fear of getting a Terminator-like shotgun blast to the chest.
***A tip of the hat to Ryan from Prose and Ivy for still being a Cubs fan and reading Byrd's blog regularly.***
