You'll recall that in this space we noted that Reds fly-catcher Billy Hamilton recently injured his hand while making a nifty snare in center. That injury turned out to be sprained knuckles, and Hamilton is likely to sit out Friday's tilt.

Regarding his long-term recovery, though, a Reds rooter is here with some consoling wisdom for young Mr. Hamilton ...

We have maladies known colloquially as "Tennis Elbow" and "Montezuma's Revenge," so why not "Frito Knuckles"? Why not indeed.

At this point, we are honor-bound to produce what follows:

Sure, sure, to be groaningly technical about it that's a Fritos-n'-cheese sandwich, which, unlike Fritos n' cheese dip, isn't linked to Frito Knuckles by controlled double-blind clinical trials, but the point stands, and the point is this ...

You're going to be just fine, Billy Hamilton.
