Former Dodger Accidentally Shot by Bodyguard

No, it's not Jamie McCourt.

Reports: Dodgers pitcher Vicente Padilla shot in leg (Diamond Notes)
Dodgers say Padilla accidentally shot himself (Diamond Notes)

Hopefully the injury is "not serious," as reported. If the Dodgers end up re-signing Padilla, will our token off-season leg injury to a starting pitcher be taken care of?

Padilla missed. He wanted to be like the rest of the team and shoot himself in the foot.

Via DT and the Google translation of the story from Venezuela:
[i]A hospital spokeswoman ... told reporters that the Nicaraguan pitcher in 32 years, this year also played with the Texas Rangers, was hospitalized for 40 minutes and already left the medical center, without gravity.[/i]

You can float out of South American hospitals? Got to get down there, STAT.
