Update: Austin Romine “probably” has concussion following foul tip to mask

By

10:34pm: Romine “probably” has a concussion, according to Joe Girardi. I imagine they have to run some tests before they know for sure. If he does have one, there’s a decent chance his season is over. Like I said, brain injuries are nothing to mess around with.

9:46pm: Austin Romine left tonight’s game in the eighth inning after taking a foul tip to the face mask. He actually stayed in the game to finish the at-bat, but was later visited by the trainer and taken off the field. More than a few catchers have suffered concussions on foul tips this year, so it’s good they’re getting him out of there. Brain injuries are no joke.

    This is trouble

    Concussion. So that means at least a week.

    Bobby Wilson come on down!

    And Murphy couldn’t block anything. If Girardi wouldn’t play Romine he ain’t playing Murphy so that leaves Stewie.

    Suzyn reported on the post-game that he’s got a concussion and went to the hospital. It just doesn’t end with this team.

    Is Posada available?

    Player-Manager time???

  8. Eh, why not give Murphy a shot? He was fine pardoning catching Kelley. We only have 5 ABs to determine him by.

    Get well, Austin. One door closes, another one opens. Murphy will get more time to see if he can take the next step as quickly as he took the last one.

    Hasn’t he had a few of these already in the minors?
