Yanks unearth Red Sox T-shirt, replace it with Kyle Farnsworth

Paranoid that a wily Red Sox fan had managed to curse his team, New York Yankees’ owner Hank Steinbrenner paid construction workers to unearth a surreptitiously buried Red Sox T-shirt from beneath the visitors’ dugout at the new Yankee Stadium and had it replaced with the body of Yankee reliever Kyle Farnsworth, who’s been dead to Yankee fans for several years.

The New York Post reported Sunday that two workers approached a construction manager with what they thought was the location of the jersey. After digging a two-foot by three-foot hole, the jersey was found.

“They absolutely pinpointed that if it was in the ground, that’s where it was,” Yankees spokeswoman Alice McGillion told the newspaper.

Initially the Yankees denied the jersey was ever buried in the footings of the new stadium. But clearly the Yankees brass is happier now with the shirt removed and Farnsworth entombed.

In four games this year, Farnsworth was 0-1 with a 5.06 ERA in 9 innings.

    That’s funny right there. Although, I think burying him there is probably more of a curse than a piece of cotton with “Red Sox” written on it.

  2. Officer Farva says:

    This whole “buried jersey” story was a preposterous fabrication. Please. A total insult to the baseball news consuming public.

  3. Chad says:

    That guy should have never gone public with the shirt burial. He should have kept it a family secret until they tore this new stadium down and his great great grandkids could have made a huge deal about it. What a tool.
    Also, isn’t Jimmy Hoffa supposed to be buried underneath Giants Stadium or something? That’s a way more exciting legend than this one.

  4. RollingWave says:

    I had the exact same thought as Adam C there lol

  5. We can’t expect Hank Steinbrenner to understand the subtleties and unintended consequences of placing a curse. I haven’t met an adult who makes a damn lick of sense regarding such shit, so what could we possibly expect from a child?

  6. Jeff says:

    I agree Adam, dead or alive, I hope Farnsworth never touches any part of the new Stadium.

    As a side note, can anyone remember the last appearance in which Farnsworth succeeded in not allowing a run? Didn’t think so.
