Hafner scratched with stiffness

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 30, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Travis Hafner has been scratched from the lineup with what the Yankees are calling general stiffness. Brennan Boesch will DH in his place. Should have more information postgame.

Meanwhile, this place is awesome, but the Internet at the stadium is a bit spotty. I am not able to access the blog except on my phone, so for now lets consider this the game post.

If you are able to follow along, feel free to discuss the game here.

    Hope the Yanks didn’t sign the brittle version of Hafner. He can hit when healthy and would be a monster if he plays most games at the stadium. Maybe Boesch is viewed as a less hairy and younger monster should Hafner prove to be his injury-prone self.

    Just as I was about to pick Hafner up for my fantasy team…

    It’s an acute case of big, hairy stiffness.

    I’m rooting for the cadets over the Yankees.

    Hafner has been his brittle version for a long time.

    And So it begins

    Boesch!! That was for you Mick. :wink:

  8. tucker March 30th, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    Mac, no doubt about that. Maybe he will have a Chavez-like resurgence as far as his health.

    I think Boesch will be pretty good.

    I think Boesch will be pretty good.

    I’ll take the under on Boesch, though I’d hope he would turn out better tthan Wells since he is under team control.

    “We have lost many lives.” Things didn’t work out too well for Rohan did they?

  12. Rich in NJ March 30th, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Under would be like below a 105-ish OPS+. If Wells can do that, that would exceed my expectations.

    Under is under 100 OPS+.

  14. Rich in NJ March 30th, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    “Under is under 100 OPS+.”

    OK, I’ll take the over if he gets at least 250 AB.

    Oh man I didnt realize Army got to use aluminum bats.

    aluminum bats or not — Boone Logan getting lit up by Army Cadets doesn’t give me the warm and fuzzies.

    The aluminu
    m bats they use today are not that different from wood bats.

  18. Rich in NJ March 30th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    I prefer corked.

  19. Chip March 30th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    For all the poop I (and others) threw Cashman’s way for the release of David Adams – a sincere apology. Turns out the GM knew what he was doing after all.

  20. Chip March 30th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Trenton Rotation
    - Nik Turley LHP
    - Francisco Rondon LHP
    - Matt Tracy LHP
    - Zach Nuding – RHP
    - Caleb Cotham – RHP

    Jose Ramirez being held back due to injury and also to keep him out of cold weather.

  21. austinmac March 30th, 2013 at 4:14 pm

    What is Ramirez’ injury?

  22. Jerkface March 30th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Blister I think?

  23. jacksquat March 30th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Hafner problems already. Good thing they kept Boesch. This is probably one reason

    “I called it the Statue of Liberty: give us your tired, your weak, your poor,” Cashman said. “I was pulling a Statue of Liberty, and we worked through that. We got it. It worked. Leiter came in and kicked butt, Chacon was awesome, Small was awesome. Some worked, some didn’t, but it’s the American way, buddy. It’s right on the plaque of the Statue of Liberty.”

    Cash talking about moves he made in 2005. The guy is a walking quote machine lately.

    Not too many of the poor on the playing field…
