Yesterday they made a big hooey in Detroit about new manager Brad Ausmus being 2 for 2 in replay challenges.

Last night Bud Black wanted to challenge a call but the umps ruled he waited too long. It would seem that MLB encourages managers to run out & stall, while they wait for signal from the bench coach.

That's exactly what happened in Detroit (waiting for the bench coach to give the sign)- so to go 2 for 2 in challenges is no big thingy when the bench coach gets a sneak peek beforehand!!!  But our news guys made it out like Ausmus is some kind of guru!

I just think they'll see how often this sort of thing happens and change the rule to "within 20 seconds of the play ending" or something.

TORONTO -- New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira left Friday night's game against the Toronto Blue Jays after suffering a strained right hamstring while chasing a foul ball in the second inning.

No other details were immediately available.

The injury apparently happened when Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera fouled a ball down the first-base line. Teixiera appeared to hobble after chasing it and summoned manager Joe Girardi out of the Yankees' dugout. After a brief conversation with Girardi and trainer Steve Donohue, Teixeira left the game.

His place at first base was taken by Kelly Johnson, who moved over from third. Johnson was replaced at third by rookie Yangervis Solarte, who slid over from second, and Brian Roberts, originally given the night off, came in to play second.

Teixeira missed all but 15 games last season after suffering a torn tendon sheath in his right wrist that required surgery. He also was hobbled by a strained hamstring during the 2010 American League Championship Series.

Teixeira had an RBI single in the first inning and left with the Yankees trailing 3-2.

Teixeira has become a useless hypochondriac. I'm sick of that guy. He can't wait to tell the media about his woes, nicks, and scrapes. Total pussy, basically the anti-Jeter.

The Cubs got 10 hits today and didn't score a run. Impressive.
