When hamburgers attack relief pitchers

The Giants will be without lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt for the remainder of the season after a freak barbecue accident suffered Thursday evening.

The setup man was trying to seperate a couple frozen burgers when the knife he was using slipped and lacerated the palm of his non-pitching hand.
