All Things Bubba

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

Well, tonight's Yankees game was a kick in the teeth. Mo blew the save. Then a walkoff homer by Youk in the 11th inning.

Even worse, Chien-Ming Wang and Cody Ransom are going on the DL. Ransom strained his quad sliding into 2B. Brian Bruney may also be headed to the DL, with elbow soreness.

Girardi said David Robertson will be called up to take Wang's spot. They will be calling up someone to replace Ransom; they haven't decided who.

They may be calling up someone to take Bruney's spot, too, depending on the MRI results.

Why not Phil Hughes? He may yet get the call. Robertson is probably a stop-gap measure. He's a reliever, not a starter. The Yanks will likely swap him out for a starter before Wang's next start.

Andy Phillips didn't have a very good day at the office, either. He was 0 for 4 with a walk and a caught stealing. He did pretty well the rest of the week, though. 2 for 4 on Tuesday, 2 for 5 with a double on Wednesday, 2 for 5 with a double on Thursday.
