Another New Jew on the Block

A day after Michael Schwimer got the call up by the Phillies, the Boston Red Sox call up Ryan Lavarnway. Lavarnway, was swinging a hot bat in AAA. This season he has 30 homers between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket while hitting .293. He’s hit .301 in 55 games with the PawSox. Click HERE to read more about Lavarnway’s call up.

Unfortunately for us Jews his call up is due to Kevin Youkilis’ back injury. Youk was placed on the 15 Day DL. Bad news for the Red Sox in the midst of a playoff race. Click HERE for more on Youk’s injury.

Lavarnway is batting 7th tonight against the Royals while playing DH. He is currently 0-3.

Good luck to Lavarnway. I wish a Jewish player got called up every day. Can tomorrow make it 3 for 3.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
