Chairs are dangerous for baseball players

Alright, tell me the Cubs aren't cursed after this story.

According to manager Lou Piniella, Lee had just sat down for some pregame chow on Wednesday when the clubhouse chair beneath him decided to call it quits.

The Cubs first baseman dusted himself off for an appearance in an exhibition game against the Rangers, but he left early to receive treatment for his 34-year-old back.

From the Chicago Tribune:

"He was eating before the game and the chair just collapsed on him," Piniella said. "That's why we got him out of there after three innings."

Piniella said Lee was fine and would be back in the starting lineup Friday.

I think at this point we should expect a Tornado to ruin Wrigley Field and black cats to start raining from the sky. Gotta love the Cubbies!
