The weather is not promising here at Yankee Stadium. Bryan Hoch and I are braving the first row of the open press box, but that’s mostly because we’re really dumb. Most everyone else has moved back a row.
There’s no announcement yet about a delay or a rainout, but it doesn’t look good.
As for actual news, the Yankees have announced that Nick Johnson had surgery today. The procedure was done at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital by hand specialist Dr. Melvin Rosenwasser who remove inflamed tissue from his right wrist. According to the Yankees official announcement, “it will be a minimum of 4-6 weeks before Johnson is able to swing a bat.”
