This...
...sounded a whole lot worse than it really is:
Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has a torn hamstring tendon in his left knee and will be sidelined at least a few days.

Posada wasn't placed on the disabled list following his MRI exam that revealed the injury, but the club said Thursday that it planned to call up a catcher from the minor leagues on Friday. Posada is scheduled to be evaluated in the next few days.

When I first read "torn hamstring tendon" I was thinking months, not days. Phew. Here's the pertinent Yankee stuff Jim Callis mentioned at Wednesday's ESPN.com chat:

Jeff (New Orleans): Who gets drafted first Almonte or Maier?
Jim Callis: Danny Almonte has a higher ceiling than Jeffrey Maier. If Almonte were considered unsignable, it's possible Maier could go ahead of him.

Chip, NYC: Melky Cabrera or Jose Tabata?
Jim Callis: Cabrera now, Tabata for the long term.

Chip, NYC: Steven White or Alay Soler
Jim Callis: Soler. Never been a big White fan.

Alex (columbus, oh): Clemens: Astro or Yankee?
Jim Callis: Astro.

Jason, New York: Cano or Anderson Hernandez
Jim Callis: Cano by a mile. Not even close.

Alex (marlboro, nj): Cano or Kinsler?
Jim Callis: Cano. Look, I've picked Cano TWICE today.

Chip, NYC: Melky Cabrera = a young Bernie Williams?
Jim Callis: Noooooooooo.

Jeff (Iowa): Best looking CWS girls - South Carolina or Texas?
Jim Callis: Can I go with my alma mater and say Georgia? [from what I saw last year, I'd say Texas, but there's really no wrong answer]
