Toronto shuts down Wells for season

Toronto center fielder Vernon Wells will miss the series this weekend. He will have shoulder surgery on Tuesday and has been shut down.

Wells is not having a good season (.245/.302/.402) but is formidable player, so that’s a break for the Yankees. Toronto does have its best starters lined up and is coming off a sweep of Boston, however.


Thanks to everybody who e-mailed saying they saw me on SportsCenter tonight. I didn’t start sweating like Albert Brooks in Broadcast News, so I considered it a success. It was good to be on with Dan Shaughnessy, a writer I have a lot of respect for.

Meanwhile, the coolest e-mail of the day came from Frank in Wollongong, Australia. He is a Yankees fan who gets his news from the web and reads the blog. He signed his e-mail, “Good energy, Frank.”

Good energy, I’ll take all of that I can get. Thanks for the e-mail, Frank.

Finally, the Yankees gave away a Jorge Posada poster at the game yesterday. If you have a kid who’s a Jorge fan, drop me an e-mail and I’ll happily send it your way.

UPDATE, 11:15 a.m.: The poster was given away. Sorry I only had one.
