GM stung by scorpion: Doug Melvin sought medical attention

Brewers general manager Doug Melvin sought medical attention after he was bitten by a scorpion Wednesday night in Phoenix Injuries to MLB general managers are piling up. Days after Yankees GM Brian Cashman broke his leg and ankle skydiving, Milwaukee Brewers boss Doug Melvin was hospitalized after he was stung by a scorpion Wednesday. The Chatham, Ont., native said he spent three hours in a emergency room in Scottsdale, Ariz., after trying to dispose of what he thought was a harmless bug in his condo. “It stung me right through the Kleenex,” Melvin told reporters. “My arm started swelling and then the numbness started going up my arm, like when you hit your funny bone. I was wondering if it might go all the way up my arm and go to my heart.
