Thought this was funny

I found this on the Seattle Times today:

Adrian Beltre didn't want to discuss whether or not he'd be wearing a protective cup for Tuesday's start at third base. Beltre is getting fed up with the questions and jokes flying around the past three weeks since he injured a testicle while trying to field a ground ball without the proper equipment.

But while he says he'll never answer that particular question again, manager Don Wakamatsu did the talking for him.

"Adrian will wear a cup tonight," Wakamatsu said before Tuesday's game.

When Beltre came up for his first at-bat, the theme for Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" was played, a gesture from Ken Griffey Jr., whose MRI on his knee showed no structural damage.
