Sweeny Murti of WFAN is reporting that Jorge Posada will be placed on the disabled list with a hamstring strain.
No word yet on who will be replacing him. Obviously this is a big blow to the Yankees. After never being on the disabled list in his career, this will be the third stint for Posada in about a year. Frankly, this is what happens when you have a 37-year-old catcher.
The question now becomes whether this keeps him out a few weeks or a few months. We should know more later.
Lots of e-mails today from fans who were part of a ruckus outside the Stadium when apparently some team employees told people the game was called. When folks left and tried to get back in, they were denied entrance.
Some people were arrested and from I understand, it was very tense.
I was in the press box, so my knowledge about this is limited to what people have communicated via e-mail. Unfortunately, it’s not a surprise. I know from dealing with them on a daily basis that the Yankees have some security people who are very aggressive.
I would say this, however. When there is a rain delay, do not believe anything you’re told by anybody until you see an announcement on the scoreboard or hear an announcement over the public address system. That is the only valid information.
