I was at the game so, everyone in the stands was mystified saying, "what'd we miss?" Never saw a replay b/c I got home late. I heard on the post game radio show about the whiplash "theory." How bad did it look on the replay? Lets pray he doesnt have a serious injury thtas impacted his spine/etc.
Joe, I watched the replay probably 4 times and it does not look like he came down particularly hard or that his head snapped back. I know from personal experience that it does not always take a traumatic hit to injure your neck, it is rather vulnerable to injury. Hopefully its a pinched nerve or something minor.
What could we expect with Nick Johnson sitting in the other dugout?
This is exactly why I didn't want the Yanks to waste a few mill on Chavez, that money would of been better spent on Damon.
Injuries happen.... they're part of the game. Just like slumps. You think Damon's immune with his legs.
Chavez is basically guranteed to miss 3 quarters of the season, can't say the same about Damon.
There is no garrantees in life except for death and taxes. Chavez has MLB throwing arm, Damon still throws like a nancy girl for a veteran MLB player. The quicker fans on this Yes board can understand than Damon and Matsui will never play again like they did for the Yankees in the 2009 World Series, they will be back in the real world.
Damon would have cost about $7 million more, and he wouldn't have been any better than Chavez.
Wrong again AJ.... You need to stop posting false information.... your going to ruin your reputation as someone who knows what they're talkingabout.
Damon was looking for 5 mil and ended up signing a minor league contract for much less.
Did I miss something? When did AJ ever know what he was talking about?
He claims to know everything.
Ah, yes, same as Robbie Cano!
I don't claim to know everything. I'm not one of those Yankees fans that whines about every loss or complains when a player goes through a slump. I get annoyed when the Yanks make a horrible signing and that's what it was when they signed Chavez. Now who's our utility infielder?
