Have Glove, Will Travel


Tough night for Austin Romine who took a foul ball off the noggin late in the game. And we’re hoping Ivan Nova and Alex Rodriguez aren’t badly hurt too. Meanwhile, the  Yanks acquired the gifted fielder Brendan Ryan yesterday. Over at Sports on Earth Jack Moore thinks it’s the best available solution.

Sucks about Austin. Just put him on the concussion DL. Brain injuries can't really be fixed.

With Murphy we're now on our fourth string catcher. Nightmare season, amazing that the Yankees are still in it.

Brendan Ryan was traded to the Mariners from the Cardinals for Maikel Cleto. That they can still see a playoff berth is more because the other teams, except the Sox, have had injuries and non-production rather than their exceptionalism.

Hey, Alex and Banterers...

Speaking as a Cardinals' fan, you are gonna LOVE Brendan Ryan's defense. It's been a long, long time since there's been any infielder as good with the leather in the Bronx (wearing pinstripes, I mean!)

Now, definitely avert your eyes when he bats...
