Garrett Richards Collapses At First Base With Apparent Leg Injury

Angels ace Garrett Richards appeared to injure his left knee while trying to cover first base on a ground ball tonight at Fenway.

It is the second least-surprising thing in the world that he reportedly rubbed teammates the wrong way by being a loner, ignoring his pitchers, and generally being a prick.
