Tim Wakefield came off the disabled list and beat the Yankees, 7-3.

Normally this is a news segment, not a commentary, but we're going to go out of character for a minute.

Your telling me, that a guy who throws the ball 40mph got hurt? How does that work? I can get off my ass, walk up two flights of stairs at my office, get a cup of coffee, walk back down, and the ball still hasn't made it to the plate yet. And my trip for coffee was far more perilous than throwing a baseball at 40mph.

Anyway, A-Rod muffed another chance to play hero in NY; bases loaded, grounds into a double play, yada-yada....game over.
