Photog Hobbles Jock
Here's hoping the cameraman who careened into New York Yankee Doug Mientkiewicz has already found another gig. Seems the Cleveland freelancer was doing the one-eyed backstep up a Jacobs Field ramp on Thursday, when he came into unplanned contact with a certain first baseman's ankle. Said balljoint did roll and now Mientkiewicz is iffy in the heroic poses department. Now, unankling a base-stealing Yankee is enough to get the average photog shot, so perhaps we should be grateful the unidentified shooter was only canned - and not made to sleep wif da fishes. As for the injury-prone Mientkiewicz, he's no doubt back in the dugout - keeping his eyes peeled for any incoming cameraman and hopefully saving his money to buy a few vowels. Play Ball!
