Jorgie Porgie Pudding and Pie!
Monday, April 28, 2008
In addition to my usual Yankees Chick posts, I have also begun writing regularly for AOL's FanHouse blog on all things AL East. I will post the beginnings of those articles here on YC, and then you'll have to click the link to jump on over to FH to read the rest... stick with me here, amigos!

Jorgie has been plagued with what he called a "dead shoulder," initially diagnosed as a simple strain but now sounding like something more serious than that. He took several days off already this year and a few partial rest days by DH'ing, but alas, the bench and DH time wasn't enough to let that shoulder heal.

Understandably, Jorgie is pretty upset about the necessary DL time:
It's very disappointing. It's the biggest disappointment in my career, probably, being on the DL and not being able to participate in games. It's really tough. I thought it was coming along, but it's not. It's something that we've got to find out what's really bothering me and take it from there.
It's nice that he feels so bad and all, and obviously it's not his fault that's he injured, but this little snafu does put the Yanks in a bit of a pinch.

They had journey man Chad Moeller while Jorgie was taking his break, but when they thought he was ready to come back they designated Chad for assignment.
