You can't make this stuff up. I mean you'd like to... you'd like to make it a big joke and then you laugh with your buddy, slap him on the back, move on, grab a brew and go watch a good Yankee game... but you can't make it up.

Dustin Fowler in his major league debut didn't even get to bat.  He went for a foul ball, got banged up and had surgery the same night.  I shit you not.  The New York Post has the story:

"Dustin Fowler, who was promoted from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and thrust into the starting lineup Thursday against White Sox righty James Shields, suffered a gruesome knee injury after he crashed into the wall in foul territory chasing a ball hit by Jose Abreu with two outs and the bases empty in the first inning.

Fowler tumbled into the seats over a low wall and collided with an unpadded metal box that manager. Joe Girardi believed was an electrical box. Fowler was diagnosed with an open rupture of his right patellar tendon and underwent surgery Thursday night at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago..."

This was the next hope, folks.  Another in the youth movement ready to play and help our team win because we have SO MANY on the DL right now.

It just didn't work out.

In the end, the Yankees lost, and slipped out of first place.  Who's ahead of us? Those pesky Sox.

This team is now officially killing me softly...
