UPDATE: Brian Cashman told Michael Kay on ESPN 1050 in New York that Eric Hinske’s flight from Pittsburgh is delayed by inclement weather. It is uncertain when he’ll arrive at Yankee Stadium. For that reason, there’s no roster move yet, but Cashman implied Ramiro Pena would be demoted to Triple-A. – Jon Lane

Comments from Joe Girardi:

On why the move was made:
“At some point, we’d thought we’d have Nady back this week. Unfortunately he had a pretty substantial setback. Hinske was available. He has the versatility of infield and outfield, so he was attractive.”

On Hinske’s intangibles
“He’s had a lot of success in the American League East. He’s been on a couple of playoff teams, a World Series team, and we thought it was important because he does know the league. He knows the brand of baseball that’s played here. We feel that he’s a tough player and we like his credentials.” – jl



    I agree, Jorgie 5th makes more sense. Although between Jorgie and Cano- who is the king of the DP??

    Mike Francesa on YES. YES “IS” the “Yankees” Entertainment and Sports Network isn’t it?? Lol. Mike Francesa is a closet Met fan. Obviously. He spends like 4 and a half hours of his show everyday, talking about the Mets and talking to Jerry Manuel. Isn’t that what the SNY network is better suited for?? He just continues to go on, and on, and on about the Mets like crazy!!



    Fran talks about whatever the bigger story is. Right now the Yanks are playing well- and the big story is how bad the Mets are- that’s why he has spent more time on them. Plus the Yanks were off Monday.
