|The situation with David Price is reminiscent of what the Twins faced with Johan Santana.|
|The Twins' eventual haul for Santana was way less than it could have been.|
“Affeldt, Affeldt. From the guy that stabbed himself in the hand and blew out his knee from his kid and blew out his oblique. He can say what he wants.”
A reporter thought Cain said “stabbed himself in the head.”
“He’s probably done that, too,” Cain cracked, “And we just never heard about it.”
“Done it. Yeah, I’ve done it,” Affeldt said. “I took a fish hook to the lip.”
Turns out Affeldt needed some serious patching up after a fishing accident with his grandfather years ago. He still has a pretty gnarly scar over his upper lip. But don’t let the kidding around take away from what was a pretty clutch outing from the left-hander. Affeldt pitched two perfect innings in relief of Cain, getting the ball all the way to Sergio Romo. That’s not easy anywhere, let alone Coors Field.
