Barmes out 4-6 weeks

Yesterday, the Yankees - still smoldering with anger over Chien-Ming Wang's foot injury at Minute Maid Park - exacted revenge by hitting Clint Barmes in the hand yesterday. McTaggart is reporting that Barmes' hand is broken, and he'll be out 4-6 weeks.

Good thing the Astros have a literal ton of middle infielders. Maybe Sanchez gets plugged in here. Maybe they bring up Manzella, and Downs can play some SS, as well.
