Oh, Shit.

Posada Likely Headed for Disabled List - New York Times:
The Yankees said there would be no announcement until after the game, but Posada, who has a tear in his subscapularis muscle, is expected to visit Dr. James Andrews and will most likely be placed on the disabled list.

Posada has already shared his magnetic resonance imaging results with Andrews, and Posada has said that surgery would not be necessary. But the problem has not improved as Posada hoped, again raising the specter of an operation.

Dr. Andrews means surgery, period. You do not go see him in person unless you are scared shitless about what's going on with your arm. He's "the doctor of last resort."

They put the kid from Scranton, Chad Moeller, on assignment when they brought up arms to bolster the bullpen. So, right now, the Yankees have one, count 'em, ONE catcher.

Good God Almighty, if Jorge goes under the knife, this season is hosed. He's the single player whose absence for any length of time is an unmitigated disaster. Losing his switch-hitting bat would be bad enough; with the Kiddie Korp Twins of Kennedy and Hughes struggling as they are, the loss of his presence behind the plate will be a disaster.

Lovin' 9-1 like a fat kid loves cake

Even with the so-called pitching woes we've had this team has got my balls as big as church bells.

The only thing I'm worried about is this: Who goes to the minors when Mikey comes back?

Jed Don't-Call-Me-Clampett Lowrie is playing like Tacoby Bellsbury did when he came up last year, Taco is playing like he belongs and yet Coco deserves everyday playing time. What to do you ask? Here's my take: trade Coco now while he's playing great for a GOOD lefty-outta-the pen.

Funny how Julio Lugo has all of a sudden caught fire with Lowrie's call up...

Dear Muttsies,

There is a REASON no one's given a fuck about your toilet bowl park since the Beatles hit town:
Papal visit adds to Cathedral's legend

"I have never seen Yankee Stadium so beautiful, and I have season tickets," Philip Giordano, 49, a tax attorney from Greenwich, Conn., told The Associated Press. "It sure beats sitting in my local church."

Yo, Pete? That IS my church, you dumb Greenwich fuck. You go say ten 'Hail Mary' and a dozen 'Our Fathers' and then shove a knife in your ribs, okay?

Learn It; Live It

"The Yankees should give Manny Ramirez the finger. Actually, four of them, every time he steps into the batter's box."
I swear, after the first homer--and what happened previously--Girardi needed to treat Manny like many NL managers (whose tactics seem comfy to Joe in other respects) treated Barry "King Rhoid" Bonds, and just refuse to allow him a chance to do any damage.

It was bloody obvious Manny has been feasting on your pitchers, Girardi; he should have been given a free pass the second time he came to the plate.

You're lucky you won't be dealing with him again until the first week of July. Here's hoping the lesson will have sunken in by then.

Well, that didn't take long: The Official Site of The New York Yankees: News: Hawkins gives up No. 21 for No. 22:
"Hawkins wore No. 22 with the Yankees during Spring Training, but switched to No. 21 when infielder Morgan Ensberg decided he no longer wanted to wear it. Ensberg was randomly assigned the number upon reporting to camp as a non-roster invitee and later revealed that he received numerous vulgar comments from Yankees fans during the Grapefruit League campaign.

Hawkins eagerly accepted No. 21 as a tribute to Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente but quickly learned that a pinstriped No. 21 has other meanings for Yankees fans. Unaware he was donning a number that had not been worn since O'Neill retired following the 2001 World Series, Hawkins was booed when introduced on Opening Day at Yankee Stadium. Fans chanted 'Paul O'Neill' during one of his appearances in the Bronx.

According to, Hawkins made the decision after discussions with Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and other Yankees veterans, who told Hawkins that the number is not worth the headache it's causing.

'I figure if it's important enough for Jeter and Mariano and some other veterans to ask me about it, it's not worth it to keep wearing the number,' Hawkins told the Web site."

I too was pissed when I heard he'd be wearing Paulie's number, and the fact he took it after Ensberg caught all sorts of shit during Spring Training should have given him fair warning that, despite his "honoring Roberto Clemente" reasoning, the same crap was gonna come raining down on him.

That said, I think the real blame for this fiasco falls directly on the Yankees, not Hawkins. When they saw the reaction Ensberg received they should have put the number on the shelf; unofficially retire the number until they decide when they are gonna be giving Paul O'Neill his due. He retired after 2001; he's made an Old Timers Day appearance; when the fuck are those assholes gonna give us "Paulie Day" and retire the number for real?

They gotta know--as does Jeter, Mo, and whoever else told Hawkins to switch--that we will NEVER accept anyone else wearing that number. Darth Boss George called him "the ultimate warrior." He was the heart and soul of the team in the time he wore Pinstripes once Donny Baseball was gone. Even if you waited ten more years, we'd still give anyone daring to wear "21" all the vitriol we could muster.

There are only two Yankee jerseys hanging in my closet; among the various numbered tee shirts in the house, only two numbers will ever be worn by me.

They belong to "Oh Captain My Captain" and Paul O'Neill.

Jeter Gets A Big Sloppy Lewinskey

this guy is an absolute asshole:
The case for a plaque is that, so far he isn't a jaw-dropping slugger, league batting champion, record setter or even a one-time Most Valuable Player. Is he a bigger deal than Yogi and Whitey?

The case for a monument so far is about a hundred-fold, such as he is one of the great clutch players ever, has four rings, is very likely to reach 3,000 hits, has three Gold Gloves and breezily handles the responsibility of being an icon on the most pressurized team in the non-stop information age.

I vote for the monument.

I vote this guy is the stupidest git walking the planet. If you follow his tortuous logic, I could make a damn good case that all the seats behind the plate at the new joint should be declared "Thurmanville," but then I'd get in a bitchfest with people insisting that honor should go to Yogi... or PC idiots saying the nod should go to Ellie.

What he should be bitching about is Paulie's number being put back in the mix. THAT is seriously bullshit.

Jeter has earned monument at new Yankee Stadium --
