For all you Pie fans...

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Cleveland center fielder Felix Pie ran into the wall chasing a fly ball and was helped from the field in the eighth inning of the Indians' split-squad game against Texas on Sunday.

The ball bounced on the warning track just shy of the fence, and Pie ran full speed into the wall. He remained on the ground for several minutes before the training staff slowly escorted him to the medical facilities in the Rangers' right-field clubhouse.

Pie entered in the seventh and was 0 for 1.

Indians first baseman Casey Kotchman did not play because of tightness in his lower back.

The first baseman was signed to a one-year contract as a free agent last month. He hit .306 with 10 homers and 48 RBIs last year for Tampa Bay.

Pie is like a soccer player. For a few minutes there you think his life is on the line. Shortly thereafter, he's running around all over the place like nothing happened.

I remember a game where I was sitting a couple rows behind the dugout on the first base side. Pie tried to beat out a grounder, toppled over after reaching first and had the most agonized look on his face. I took photos of it all...the way he was acting I thought it was an ACL or an Achilles or something.

He was fine.

When someone mentions Pie, all of you know, that I'll be having my say. ;)

As much as I loved watching him play, I have finally come to the conclusion that he's a train wreck. However, I'm still rooting for him to do well, just for anybody, other than the O's. Sad to say, be he's just too much of a drama queen.

With that being said, I hope that he's ok.

I'm still trying to figure out how Luis Hernandez is still playing baseball.

Random AAA players sometimes get to have long careers as utility players. Not because they're better than, or as good as, dozens of other random AAA players but because some team once gave them the chance to play major league baseball and now they're bona fide. It's often lost to history that the first chance was the spectacular coincidence of injury, total lack of depth, and a painfully uncreative front office.
