Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Beware the Ides of March, indeed

Ugh. It's not going well. Bubba was pulled after two innings, replaced with Denorfia. I think it must be an injury.

UPDATE: Yup, it's an injury. "Mild strain of the left calf."

UPDATE #2: From

Outfielder Bubba Crosby exited Thursday night's game after one inning with a mild strain of his left calf muscle. Crosby, who will be reevaluated on Friday, fell down trying to catch Ronny Paulino's first-inning drive to the center-field wall.

Bubba actually stayed in two innings, though the injury happened in the first inning. From what the Pittsburgh announcers said, he lost his footing on the grass and fell.

Sounds like the field is not great there in Ed Smith Stadium. It's being blamed for Hamilton's shin splints. And the other day, when Baldelli robbed Bubba with a diving catch, the announcers commented that he didn't slide at all. The field doesn't have any "give." Instead, he hit the ground hard and dug out a huge divot.

A lot of people are expecting more roster cuts to be announced this morning.

An injury cost him big-time with the Yanks as well.
