Andy Ailing

Andy Phillips hasn't played since Saturday. He had been playing every day up until then. I could see giving him one day off to rest, but it's been five days now. I figured he must be injured, and sure's his back:

Phillips is sidelined with stiffness in his lower back and will be out at least for another day. Unexplicably, the stiffness started on Saturday and is still bothering Phillips a bit, he said. The Pirates will want Phillips to be able to take part in an entire morning workout before letting him return to the field for a game.

That probably means he won't get to play against the Yankees on Saturday.

The Pirates play the Yankees again on Tuesday, at Steinbrenner Field. I'm really hoping Andy gets to play in that game. I'm sure Yankees fans would love to see him again.

Meanwhile, former Yankee Karim Garcia is tearing it up for Mexico in the WBC. Yesterday, he went 4-4, with 2 homers and 4 RBI.

I dig this photo of the seats down the first base line at the new Yankee Stadium.

LOL! I wonder how much they're charging for those seats...
