Cervy: I'm not Mark Teixeira

NEW YORK -- The last time Francisco Cervelli played first base in a game he was 15. The early scouting report on him at the position is: Inexperienced, but a good sense of humor.

TORONTO -- Joe Girardi seemed to think the play in which Francisco Cervelli was called out at the plate in the third inning was a significant one in the Yankees' 4-0 loss to the Blue Jays. In fact, it was significant for another, more important reason: It illustrated the folly of baseball attempting to legislate safety into what is an inherently dangerous part of the game. To recap, Cervelli, who had doubled, was trying to score on a single by Jacoby Ellsbury.
