Wow. Okay. That was some way to kick things off. And today has the promise of another memorable episode in The Greatest Rivalry In Sport, with the erstwhile Marlins AJ Burnett and Josh Beckett facing off in a marquee matchup on national television. Last night was low-scoring kind of by accident and despite a ton of men on the pads. Today, one suspects, runs will be hard to come by again, but you never know. As we like to say, these teams just wear each other out. Meanwhile, roster moves from the Yanks:
-Chien-Ming Wang has been placed on the DL with
a severe case of Homeritis* a "hip" injury.
-Cody Ransom has been placed on the DL
for being Cody Ransom with a leg strain.
-Brian Bruney has been placed on the DL
because the Yanks can't catch a break with some kind of elbow thing that is either (a) not serious or (b) a major problem.
-David Robertson, Angel Berroa, and Mark Melancon are their replacements.
*From WebMD: Homeritis: A severe inflamation of the ERA. Can be extremely painful, but generally more for the fans of the patient than the patient himself.
