Fluke injury department

The forearm injury that sidelined Tigers flamethrower Joel Zumaya during the playoffs is now being blamed ... on a video game.

The symptoms apparently cleared up when Zumaya stopped playing the PlayStation 2 game "Guitar Hero," which features a guitar-shaped controller to simulate the actions guitarists use to crank out rock music.

"That was probably what was taking place," Tigers president Dave Dombrow-ski told the Detroit Free Press.

The Twins know all about this game. During a late-season trip to Baltimore, the sounds of "Smoke on the Water" echoed from the visitor's clubhouse with Johan Santana, Matt Guerrier and others reveling in the fun.
