Joe West Gets Clobbered Upside The Head, Starts Bleeding, Does Not Break Into Song

It was a tough night behind the dish for Joe West, who got knocked hard in the ol' noodle by the follow-through of Carlos Lee's swing. The game was delayed for a few minutes while West was attended to by the Braves' medical staff. Sadly, as far as we know, he did not pass the time by humming a few tunes from his albums Diamond Dreams or Blue Cowboy. Soon enough, the WestBot 3000 was back in working order, defying all sense of time and logic by working his 4,400-ish career game. It'll take a harder knock than that to get the Blue Cowboy out of a game.
