Stupid Pie Tricks

Sounds like a riddle from Carnac the Great:

Chris Coghlan, shaving-cream pie, disabled list.

Read the story for yourself.

The Phillies lost Chase Utley for a long time because of a thumb injury he incurred while sliding head first into second base. They lost Placido Polanco for a time because he got hit by a pitch on his elbow, and catcher Carlos Ruiz made his way to the disabled list with a concussion that resulted from getting hit by a bat.

But the Marlins, who were red hot, lose a key cog because of, well, a fun post-game prank. Or, a post-game prank that was supposed to be fun.

No one is laughing now.
