Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003

Sorry steal Joe’s thunder here, but I just wanted to post this item from tonight’s D-Rays/Red Sox game:

Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Matt Clement was carted off the field after being hit by a line drive on his head in Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Tropicana Field

I always liked Clement when he was with the Cubs. He went out and did his job, and never complained about anything, be it lack of run support or being moved out of the rotation in 2004. By all accounts, he’s also a genuinely nice guy, and I know he has a wife and young children. Here’s hoping that Matt is going to be okay.

Good news, it appears that Matt will be okay. A CT scan came up negative, and he never actually lost consciousness on the field.
