Excessive Vomiting

Josh Outman was placed on the Rockies’ DL with a strained oblique, due to excessive vomiting.

Apparently he got food poisoning at a Denny’s.

Boy, those meal allowances must be pretty low.

A commenter on Baseball Think Factory has the best quip:

Turns out Outman gave up a grand slam.

Apologies for my lackluster Photoshop skills. That’s supposed to be vomit coming from his mouth, not an alien ghost trying to be his friend.

I heard it was an Olive Garden. Whatever; they’re both the worst.

It’s so funny to me how much shit food pro athletes eat.

It’s not helped by spending time in the minors. Minor leaguers get so little money for food/living expenses that their options are basically Wendy’s and ramen.

In reality, minor leaguers get about 10K a week in allowances. It’s just that each one loses about 9.8K a week to Orel Hershiser in poker.

The part that struck me was the use of the word “excessive”, which makes me wonder if anyone has ever been placed on the DL for “insufficient” vomiting?
