PED SOX prospect Bryce Brentz shoots self in leg

Bryce Brentz cost himself an invitation to major league spring training with the Boston Red Sox, for now, after he accidentally shot himself in the leg cleaning his handgun. An outfield prospect who recently turned 24 years old, Brentz had gotten the attention of manager John Farrell, who says Brentz is a candidate to get called up from Triple-A this season. Shooting yourself has a way of clouding those possibilities. Red Sox camp opens officially tomorrow, but Brentz will start with the minor leaguers once he's healthy....

3. He shot himself at home back in January..

Just like with football, I'm sure many baseball players own them. Brentz should familiarize himself with the proper procedure for cleaning a gun. Checking to see if it's loaded is first on the list. What a dope.

4. NRA says baseball bats are more dangerous than guns

so they figure as long as they can handle bats they should be able to handle guns

6. Bats haven't been dangerous in very many Red Sox' hands lately.

That would be a good thing actually.
