Wolf and Ham: A Cautionary Tale

From "Dodgers hand out holiday hams to fans: Farmer John, Ralphs and Food4Less help team give back" at Dodgers.com:

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers pitcher Randy Wolf, general manager Ned Colletti, Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti and Council member Ed P. Reyes were among those spending early Tuesday night handing out holiday hams to fans at Dodger Stadium....

"It's special to be part of helping those who might be less fortunate," said Wolf, recently signed to bolster the starting rotation. "At holiday time, it's great to help out and share. This is something the fans will remember and I'll remember being a part of."

How that last paragraph reads to Sons of Steve Garvey:

"It's special to be part of helping those who might be less fortunate," said Wolf, as he handed a 15-pound ham to a grateful fan. "At holiday time—AAUGH! MY ARM JUST SNAPPED IN TWO! WHY DIDN'T THEY MAKE BROXTON DO THIS INSTEAD? MY CAREER IS OVER! WHY DID I HAVE TO LIFT HAMS WITH MY PITCHING ARM?!"

Colletti immediately got on his cell phone to deal for Chan Ho Park.
