If Mark Buehrle wants to make his own sandwich, by golly, you better let him make his own sandwich. Unfortunately for him, he had to learn the hard way that it’s probably best to let somebody do that for you when they offer.

Prior to his Marlins debut last Thursday against the Reds, Buehrle reportedly cut his hand while trying to open a jar of mayonnaise when he was making a sandwich for himself. The Palm Beach Post has more:

“I came in to make a sandwich and they said ‘You know we have people who can make sandwiches for you,’’’ Buehrle said. “(I said) ‘I’m a grown man, I can make my own sandwich.’ It was just a complete freak thing.”

Buehrle said he was thinking about the small slice in the first inning when he gave up a hit and a walk and hit a batter.

Buehrle gave up seven hits and two earned runs and received the loss. He says he’ll be ready to go for his next start this Thursday in Philadelphia, so it’s doubtful you’ll be seeing his name on the injury report listed next to “mayonnaise jar injury.” Regardless, let this remind us that the guy who invented the plastic squeeze bottle deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.
