    From Mark Feinsand -

    …Doug Mientkiewicz was apparently run over by a Cleveland cameraman as he got off the team bus at Jacobs Field.

    Mientkiewicz was taken to the Yankees clubhouse on a cart, according to one witness, where he was examined by team trainers. After having his left ankle taped up, he went to the field to test it out under the watchful eye of Joe Torre and Don Mattingly.

    …The cameraman tripped and fell on the back of Mientkiewicz’s foot, rolling the Yankee first baseman’s ankle.

    “I was walking up the ramp and he was backpedaling while filming. He tripped into me; my left foot was up and he landed on the back of it and rolled it,” Mientkiewicz said.

    If there wasn’t reason enough to start Shelley Duncan at first tonight, with Big Bad C.C. on the mound for the Tribe, shouldn’t this be the clincher to get Duncan in there?
