The Baseball Gods Are Laughing...

Yesterday, Torre said Andy Phillips is the starting first baseman. Today, he's out of the lineup.

Turns out Andy has a stiff neck, so Miggy's playing 1B.

OK, I was wondering why he wasn't in there.

You are going to laugh. I starting watching the Yanks game in the 6th inning, and didn't know the lineups or anything. Anyway, when that ball was hit in the gap in left center, I stood up in the middle of the bar and yelled, "Holy #$%@! Bubba's back!" Then, I realized the uni said "18" on the back, Damon had just gotten a shorter buzzcut, and was in LF for some reason. For about 10 sec., I thought they had made a deal I didn't hear about.

What's up with Damon's hair, anyway? He used to be so hairy, now he's practically a skinhead. ;-)

Damon was in LF, probably because of his bad legs. They wanted to give him less ground to cover. But he's not used to it, and it showed. The ball looks different coming off the bat in left than it does in center.

Last season, I would sometimes confuse Damon and Bubba. They don't really look alike, but from a distance, there's something similar. The general build? The way they move? I dunno, but I would sometimes confuse them.
