Besides each taking part in dubious public appeals? (example a, example b). While aside from belonging to the great mutual admiration society all true artists are a part of, the Mets’ 3B and the award-winning star of “BioDome” have each suffered injuries.

In the case of the former, Wright’s back spasms will result in Julio Franco starting at 3B tonight against the Diamondbacks and reigning NL Cy Young Brandon Webb.  As for the latter (above), he’ll have to continue sucking out loud from somewhere other than the back of a bull.
