Pic of the Week

David Robertson, Yankees relief pitcher, reacts
on behalf of all men as catcher Gary Sanchez
takes a foul tip to the vulnerable spot.

Sympathy personified. Not exactly the way players typically react to somebody else getting hit there. When it's somebody else getting a "cup check." it's funny.

Adrian Beltre, the Cooperstown-bound third baseman, apparently disdains wearing a protective cup. Some years ago, when he was with the Seattle Mariners, he took a smash there and wound up on the disabled list with a crushed testicle that reportedly swelled to the size of a grapefruit.

When he returned to action weeks later, his walkup music for his first at-bat -- selected by Junior Griffey -- was "The Nutcracker Suite."

(The word is, Beltre still won't wear a cup.)
