Khalil Attacks Box; Box Wins...Paulie Boxed Out of D.C.

And you thought Manny was a headcase? Via Deadspin comes this news:

As the Padres feared, shortstop Khalil Greene fractured his left hand on Wednesday night when he slammed a storage chest at Petco Park in frustration over his season-long slump.

Greene's return for this season is doubtful, according to the club.

But it could be worse, Khalil—you could be Paul Lo Duca.

From the Washington Post:

After [last night's] game, the Nationals released two veterans, Felipe Lopez and Paul Lo Duca.
