Rivera out with back spasms..may miss Friday's game.
 
Quote:

DETROIT -- The New York Yankees placed outfielder Gary Sheffield on the 15-day disabled list Thursday and All-Star closer Mariano Rivera hurt his back while getting dressed before their game against the Tigers
Quote:

Rivera, who said he hoped to be ready for Friday night's series opener in Baltimore, didn't enjoy watching Farnsworth's collapse

"Feeling like this is horrible," Rivera said. "It's tough -- real tough. That was my job out there. I was pulling for Kyle."

Torre wasn't hopeful.

"The way he's walking around, I don't think it is going to change too quickly," he said. "He's pretty uncomfortable."

Thats a tough way to go out, back spasms as you're putting a shoe on... dear lord. I never want to get old. Its official. 21 is old enough. I can drink now, I'm set. Lets stop this aging thing right here, right now.

You and the Tigers should be thankful for that bad back..otherwise series = 4-0

Although I admit I am enjoying seeing the Tigers playing good ball...I certainly hope they keep their lead on the CHISOX.

Well sa let's get these injuries out of the way now, we don't need them later on like say for instance in Oct. LOL Seriously we really need Mo, I don't have confidence in Farnsworth. I really can't wait for Dotel to come back to help out in the pen. You know who is pretty decent that I felt Torre should have gave the ball too in that last game of the Detriot series. That's Villone, give hm or shot. If not he could have also went with Erickerson to handle the 9th.
