Pope to start in Yankee Stadium in April


I’m not talking about Yankees’ farmhand Justin but rather Benedict XVI. The Pope will be making an April visit to one of baseball’s most celebrated Cathedrals. He’ll have to find another number though for his trip to the Bronx as Number 16 was retired long ago.

    Maybe he can exorcise the demons that have been plaguing us since 2004…

    I always thought that God wore pinstripes.

  3. Mike N (Stamford, CT) says:

    If he has good breaking stuff and he can locate his fastball I’ll root for him… anyone know if he is a righty or a lefty?

  4. steve (different one) says:

    this pope is definitely righty.

  5. NC Saint says:

    Justin, eh? Even when it’s joke time, Ryan Pope can’t get any love.

    You know, just when you think Cashman is on the right track, he gets desperate and brings in a 60+ year old guy who never threw a ball in the majors – this is shades of Kei Igawa all over again.

    I hope this doesn’t meant the Yanks are going to cut ties with Mo.
