Bobby Seems to be Doing Alright

Bobby Seems to be Doing Alright

So it turns out that Bobby Abreu wasn't being lazy out there in right field, he just isn't capable of being unnerved.  In case you missed it, the Yankees swept the Red Sox over the weekend in a 5 game series and Abreu had the go ahead RBI in Monday's game.

Abreu was profiled today in the New York Times.  It seems as if they can't get enough Abreu in the Bronx.

Joe Torre thinks so:

If the Yankees remain ahead of the Red Sox, Torre agreed that Abreu
would represent the reason why. Torre said Abreu’s at-bats were so
shrewd, so professional, that there were no situations that unnerved

Derek Jeter thinks so:

Derek Jeter,
who bats in front of Abreu, said Abreu “seems like a perfect fit for
this team” and noted that Abreu’s defense in right field had been above
average, too. Johnny Damon, who belongs to the Abreu school of irking
pitchers by extending at-bats, has been stunned with how Abreu never
gives in.

And Bobby himself seems to agree:

“This is the right team,” Abreu said. “This is the right time.”

Eagles injury update: Secondary hamstrung for second straight day


Eagles injury update: Secondary hamstrung for second straight day

It looks like all three members of the Hamstrung Trio (see story) weren't practicing again on Thursday. 

At the start of Thursday's practice, Rodney McLeod, Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins, who suffered hamstring injuries on Sunday against the Chiefs, were not participating. This will be the second straight day all three will miss practice. 

McLeod was the only member of the trio to even make an appearance at practice before reporters were kicked out after individual drills. He walked onto the field with a compression sleeve on his right leg and began to watch.

There was, however, a new safety on the field. Newcomer Trae Elston, who was claimed off waivers from the Bills, was on the field for the first time with the Eagles. He was wearing No. 35. 

It'll be tough for the Eagles to get Elston caught up by game time on Sunday at 1 p.m. Aside from Elston, the Eagles have just Malcolm Jenkins and Chris Maragos as safeties, although linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill could be used in a pinch and Jenkins thinks a couple cornerbacks have the ability to play safety (see story)

Ronald Darby (ankle) and Destiny Vaeao (wrist) were the other two Eagles who weren't practicing on Thursday. Darby is out for at least another few weeks with his dislocated ankle. 

Vaeao missed the Chiefs game and looks to be in danger of missing another week. In his absence, rookie sixth-round pick Elijah Qualls played nine snaps and played well. Qualls could see his workload increase as the fourth DT against the Giants.
