Gio Gonzalez of the Washington Nationals must hope the regular season starts soon. His off-season has been weird and just keeps getting weirder.

First, Gonzalez was implicated in baseball’s most recent performance enhancing drug scandal at a Miami clinic, only to be cleared last weekend. Monday at the Nationals’ spring training facility in Viera, Fla., Gonzalez revealed that he suffered rug burn on his forehead while wrestling with his vicious (not really) pet bulldog, Hollywood.


Somebody call Dana White and get that dog on the next UFC card! Poor Gio. He’s bound to have a better regular season as long as he stays away from the state of Florida.

Between Carl Pavano’s spleen, Bryce Brentz’s self-inflicted wound and Gio’s scuffed forehead, it’s been a bad winter in MLB.
