Nick Johnson's Wrist Might Need Surgery? Who Saw THAT Coming???

If you had May 15 in your "Nick Johnson's First Wrist-Related DL Trip of the Season" office pool then congratulations on your winnings.  Read it and weep, via The New York Times. 

3 weeks if the cortisone shot works?  4-6 if he ends up needing surgery (he will end up needing surgery)?  First of all, what kind of crazy internet porn is Johnson wanking it to that he has such a problematic wrist as a result?  Second of all, what is his wrist made of, plastic coffee stirrers and paper mache?

Early in the season or not early in the season, I'm going to pencil this signing in under "Bad Move" for Cash.  Now we get to enjoy the "Juan Miranda Show" for the next 2 months.

Oh My Goodness Gracious!!! Andy Pettitte Is BACK!!!

Doesn't quite have the same ring as Big Suze's original Rawjah Clemens freak out, but it was still good to see Andy back out on the hill today and back out there dominating as he was before the injury.  Nothing a little extra rest and a few HGH shots can't fix, huh?  (I keed, I keed)

So far this weekend has gone exactly as I predicted.  It's always good to know that no matter how difficult a road trip or schedule may be, the Yankees always have the Twins to fall back on when they need to right the ship and start knocking teams around again.

Thanks, Minnesota.  The team needed that before their 2-and-2 against Bahston and Tampa next week.  Have fun getting your asses dominated by Sergio Mitre tomorrow.
