Another One Bites the Dust??

The injury gods are merciless, my friends.

It's been but one week since the start of the season and our dear team has already been struck not once but twice by Pavano's Patented Pain Plague. Jeter was the first to go down, with a strained quad and/or groin muscle - I'm actually not sure which one... I keep reading/hearing different things. If anyone has a direct line to Jeter's groin, please ask it if it's OK - on Monday, and yesterday Jorgie Porgie had to be taken out of the game because his bum shoulder was acting up again (perhaps it was just tired of not throwing people out and decided to take a breather).

Neither Jeet nor Jorgie has been busted down to the DL just yet, but they're both out for the time being. Jorgie is going in for an MRI on that pesky shoulder today, so we'll know more this afternoon, I'd imagine. I'm far more worried about Jorgie than I am about The Jeet - not only is he older and more fragile, he's also tougher to replace. That is no slight to Jose Molina - a team could do far worse than a Molina brother when it comes to backup catchers (sorry, John Flaherty) - but the catcher is traditionally the heart of your team, and Posada has exemplified that role for the Yankees throughout his career. The team will absolutely notice his absence every day he's not on the field. Furthermore, the Yanks simply have a lot more options when it comes to plugging someone into an infield slot.

Just yesterday I was remarking how odd it felt to rely on our pitching while the offense sat around gorging themselves on sunflower seeds, and unfortunately all signs are pointing towards more of the same. Cano and Giambi are still muddling through ridiculously slow starts and now Jeter and Jorgie are out before even having the chance to pull themselves out of their own slumps. I hope Better Mint, Mo-Ens, and J-Mo are ready to back up our pitching, since our starters apparently don't feel like it...

See you tonight, B-Squad Bombers!

    Jorge claims that this happened to him in spring training this year and that it went away on its own. Still, the fact that this is the second time it has happened makes me nervous. Pavano is clearly to blame.

    I am more worried about Jorge too, the yankees actually have a better winning percentage when Jeter doesn't play.
