Where's Lance Pendleton when you need him?

The Yankees activated Luis Ayala off the DL today. To make room, Lance Pendleton was optioned back to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The Yanks are currently in extra innings against the Royals. Ayala is pitching the 11th, and the pen is spent. Michael Kay said Pendleton should keep his bags packed, because they're going to need an extra arm.

They sure could have used Pendleton tonight. But they can't call him up again until he's spent 10 days in the minors. Unless they put someone on the DL.

Meanwhile, Paul Janish returned to the lineup in the Reds' day game. So he did get to play a game in front of his home town crowd. His defense was solid (he started at 3B, and moved to SS in the 9th as a LIDR), but he didn't reach base all game. 0 for 4. He hits lefties much better than righties, so I thought he'd hit against Wandy Rodriguez. The Reds in general didn't have a great day, losing 4-3.

The Reds are off tomorrow. Friday, Scott Rolen returns, so Janish will probably move from 3B back to SS.
