Khalil's Fragile Hands only bruised

Khalil has bones so brittle that even the slightest breeze could crush them.  If Brian Giles whispered sweet nothings ever so gently into Khalil's ear, the smallest bones in his body would turn to dust.  

Khalil returned to the lineup friday after missing 6 games due to a strained finger, when he was hit by a pitch this afternoon.  X-Rays were taken, flowers were sent, amputation planned but it turned out that it was simply a bruise.

I think this speaks more to the weakness of Backe's pitch then the strength of Khalil's hand.  He must have been throwing so soft that a butterfly might land, take a nap on the leather and use the seams as a pillow.

So yeah, it's just a bruise.
