In case you missed it, Hanley was slightly injured in last night's game.
"It's a little bit sore,'' Girardi said.
"If he misses one day, I'd be surprised if it was any more. If it's a night game he'd probably play for sure (today). But being that it's a day game we'll have to see how he feels.''
That is really a shame since he was hot, hitting three home runs in as many games.
Unless Ramirez shows absolutely no signs of discomfort, I would expect Alfredo to be the short stop for today's game.
Speaking of Hanley's home runs he broke the franchise record for leadoff home runs in a season.
Cliff Floyd?!? Yes, you read that right.
I had forgotten about Jim Leyland's strange experiment in 1998. Now I'm sure someone will write me or comment how it made perfect sense at the time and maybe it did. But you have to admit - it was a bit unorthodox.
If Ramirez can get another leadoff home run this season he will exclusively hold all the club records.
