Jew Playin' Today, Mang?

I'm off to Lawn Gisland for some Yom Kippur snacky smores...

Today's big question is this: Does Astros catcher Brad Ausmus -- born to a Jewish mother, raised in the faith and eighth all-time on the homers and ribbies among hook-nosed major leaguers -- play some beisbol tonight or does he sit out a la Sanford K. in the 1965 Series?

I'm betting he'll be in the lineup.

I believe in the past when such issues have come up Ausmus has chosen to play.
Enjoy the festivities.

How is it fair that my shiksa wife gets the day off, and I've been stuck int he office all day? I'm the purebred Jew here... damn.

Also still pissed at Shawn Green for sitting out Yom Kippur back in 2002, costing me precious power stats in my roto league.

Anyway, enjoy the night.

Hank Greenberg was Jewish?
