Wednesday Afternoon Food For Thought

Already in the 2013 Yankee season, we've seen:

- Francisco Cervelli play second base and Robinson Cano play shortstop in the same game

- Vernon Wells play every infield position except short and get 1 start at first base

- Lyle Overbay play 4 games in the outfield for the first time in his Major League career

And after last night's injury scare to Cano, we can add "Mark Reynolds play second base" to that list.  He played the final inning at second last night as an injury replacement for the injury replacement, and naturally he turned the game-ending double play.  If you had any of those things picked as a prop bet before the season started,  you're a smarter person than I.

I'd like to say that your "already in 2013 we've seen" opening sentence made me immediately flash to Whitt Bass from "Angels in the Outfield."

"This season alone we've seen him lick dirt, eat bugs, and floss his catcher's teeth, in the dugout."

Wish I could say the movie reference is way off base...
