Somewhere Over The Standings

Who are those weird looking people on the back page of the New York Daily News today? Apparently they're (from left to right) Joba Chamberlain (The Cowardly Lion), Ian Kennedy (Dorothy), Shelley Duncan (Scarecrow), and Phil Hughes (Tin Man).

After their loss to the Blue Jays yesterday, the Yankees had their rookies dress up as characters from The Wizard Of Oz for the annual end-of-year rookie hazing. Peter Abraham thinks these guys got off easy, considering that Robinson Cano and Chien-Ming Wang were required to dress up as cheerleaders two years ago. I disagree. The Yankees are where they are today because of the Yankee Youth Movement. These guys are trade deadline acquisitions. Eric Gagne didn't have to put on any embarrassing costumes yesterday. Why should they?

The worse part is they had to fly to Tampa that way and check into the hotel looking like that.
