Russell Martin leaves game with stiff back


Russell Martin left tonight’s game in the eighth inning with a stiff back. Dewayne Wise pinch-hit for him before Chris Stewart took over behind the plate. David Robertson was bouncing breaking balls all over the place in the eighth, but who knows if that caused/contributed to the problem. Martin was likely to get Sunday off anyway with CC Sabathia pitching, but we’ll see what they say. Check back for updates.

    Does this mean Cirvelli gets called up?

  2. JonS says:

    Is there any possibility that they would skip Cervelli since he’s doing so bad at SWB?

  3. Betty Lizard says:

    Oh noes!

    (Russell: I could fix that for you.)

    Do they still have Craig Tatum?

    Yanks find out fast that stewie is like batting the pitcher, blue eyes fist pumps as he start going deep and getting clutch hits and leads yankees to the title.
