Yankees | Mientkiewicz likely headed for disabled list

Sat, 2 Jun 2007 21:00:59 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Doug Mientkiewicz is expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list before the game, Sunday, June 3, one day after colliding with Boston Red Sox 3B Mike Lowell on an errant throw by Yankees SS Derek Jeter, according to the Associated Press. Mientkiewicz was taken from the field on a cart after banging his head on Lowell's hip while trying to one-hop Jeter's throw in the seventh inning. He suffered a mild concussion, cervical sprain and a fractured bone in his right wrist, and spent the night at Massachusetts General Hospital for observation.

That injury was just sickening. I didn't even care how the game ended after that.

I'm just glad Yankee fans aren't like Sox fans. Sox fans would have been saying it was done on purpose, especially if it were A-Wad instead of Lowell.

Get off your high horse mate. If Jeter had made a decent throw Mientkiewicz would be playing tonight.

Funny because the Yankee fans I know in real life said Lowell did it purposely.

I'm not on a high horse, I'm just making an observation. If that had been A-rod sox fans would be saying bush league and/or it was on purpose. There is no blame on this play, it was a very bad accident.

Well then I owe Gainzo an apology, no yanks fan here would be stupid enough to say something like that though.

It was a clean play, no fault on anyone. If anyone thinks that was intentional they are a frickin moron.

Truth is, Cano made a horrible feed to Jeter to start the potential DP. If he gets it to 2nd on the money, the throw to first is well ahead of Lowell, and there is no collision.

Bingo.

Neither play, Lowell planting Cano or Lowell hitting Doug M. were dirty.

The Doug M. thing was a freak accident. The Cano hit was nothing more that good old school baseball.

Not to be a jerk or anything, but how is Mientkiewicz being on the DL a bad thing? How a light-hitting first baseman still has a job in baseball beyond me.

its never good seeing a guy get hit in the head like that, especially the way he folded as he got hit. I was sadder that it happened to a guy like doug. i loved watching him on the Twins, it was his 'class' of players that turned that franchise in the right direction...no offense, but i'm sort of sad to see him on the yanks, i wish he'd have stayed at least mid-west.

you won't be asking that question when Phelps or (gulp) Damon are at 1B in the 8th or 9th inning one night and can't scoop a Jeter or AROD throw, 2 outs, tying run on 3rd. Mientkiewicz at the plate is horrendous, but he is a ridiculous fielding 1B. If guys like Damon, Abreu and Cano were hitting up to their ability, nobody would care that Mientkiewicz is hitting .240.
