From the Staten Island Advance -
The Yankees placed ailing starter Shawn Chacon (bruised knee) on the disabled list and recalled outfielder Terrence Long to shore up the bench. Chacon, who missed a start last night, continues to struggle with a hematoma caused by a comebacker in the 5-3 loss to Boston on May 11.
“The knot is still there (on his leg),” Torre said. “There is still that one trouble spot, so you don’t want to take any chances.”
And, so, the Terrence Long Era (or should I say “Error”?) begins.
Don’t get me wrong. I know that Damon has broken bone in his foot, and Bernie has issues with his wheels, and Kevin Reese can’t hit a lick, and Melky has an iron glove…….and those are the Yanks choices at the moment for the outfield.
But, Terrence Long?
Just watch – when Sheffield and Crosby come back – Reese and Melky will go back down to the minors before Long does. You know that’s how it works in Torre-Cashman-Land.
Looks like I picked the wrong week for quitting sticking my head in a bucket full of ice.
