We can forgive Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis's exuberance at witnessing the greatness that was Josh Beckett's gem of a game yesterday. Not that the backup had anything to do with it, but still. What we can't forgive is the clumsiness that saw him stepping on a catcher's mask, tweaking his ankle, and ending up on the 15-day DL.

Per ESPN, Ellis's explanation:
My right foot landed right on top of it and rolled it pretty good. I knew right away that it was more significant than other ankle rolls I've had in the past. I'm beyond frustrated.
At least it wasn't "Kendry Morales" bad.
