People say to me, “Anglin, Anglin – what happened? The site is all doom and gloom! It’s not funny! It’s supposed to be funny!”
Here’s your funny news story.
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Jose Alvarez is definitely in a lot of pain after taking a 105 mph line drive right to his groin.
The incident happened during the bottom of the 5th inning of Thursday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, according to an article published by TMZ. Alvarez was acting as a relief pitcher when Lourdes Gurriel hit the ball straight back at him.
Oh my Jose Alvarez right in the….

Alvarez still managed to run after the ball and get the out, but he really did take a gnarly hit. He can be seen laying on the field for a good chunk of time before they took him off the field in a cart.
TMZ reported that the extent of his injuries are currently unknown, but Alvarez did wave to the crowd as he was carted off the field.
Holy jeez, man.
That isn’t funny.
Why do you think this is funny?
