This Week in Anger Management-Ball

Minor Leaguer Delmon Young Throws Bat at Vampire.

Delmon Van Helsing in 2003. Apparently he's a Scorpio.

Durham Bulls outfielder Delmon Young threw a bat into the chest of a vampire after being called out on strikes in the first inning Wednesday night in Pawtucket, Transylvania.

Young took a third strike on a 1-and-2 pitch. When Young delayed leaving the batter's box, the vampire tried to bite him. Young then flipped his bat underhand. It sailed end over end and hit the vampire in the chest.

But isn't that redundant? Aren't vampires already bats?

CORRECTION: Oops, I misread the story yet again. Not vampire -- umpire.

Well, that's very different. Shame on you, young man! Igor, suspend that Devil Rays prospect! In the la-bor-atory!
