Hurricane Alberto

Okay, it's not a hurricane yet, but it's on the verge of becoming one. Rotten timing.

From the Hartford Courant:

The Yankees are still figuring out when to bring back outfielder Bubba Crosby from his minor league rehab assignment with Class A Tampa. Crosby, recovering from a hamstring injury, was hitless in five at-bats Saturday. Sunday's game was rained out. "He played the outfield flawlessly, but the report was that his timing was a little off," Torre said. "We'll probably wait until that resolves itself. We'd like him to be a little more comfortable."

Sunday's game was rained out in the bottom of the 1st, before Bubba got to bat. (The outer bands of Alberto, probably.)

In the two games Bubba played, he was 1 for 8 with a walk, a HBP, and two strikeouts. Not good. (C'mon, Bubba. Dump the Rice Krispies and start eating your Wheaties.)

Unfortunately, as I type, Alberto is bearing down on the Florida coast. Which is where Tampa is. They are expecting torrential rains. In other words, I don't think anyone will be playing any baseball in Tampa any time soon. If they want Bubba to have more starts before they reactiviate him, they'll either have to wait awhile longer, or have him play some games with the Clippers or some other team.

I'm hoping they decide to just activate him anyway. Even if he's rusty, he can't be worse than Nick ".077" Green. If Jeter's okay to play, they can send Nick down and activate Bubba.
