Create your own story: Lyle Overbay's glove

If your Yankee fandom expands past, "I know Jeter! He's cute," you may have heard that MLB veteran 1B Lyle Overbay had his first start in RF last night.

Reports have surfaced that Overbay had not received his outfielder's glove and was using Boone Logan's glove in the meantime. Well, my college roomie Jon Bleiweis sent me this picture from yesterday's game:

If you can get past the fact that he looks like a 14-year-old girl who just saw a cute boy in this shot, you might notice the name stitched on his glove. Here are a few possible explanations for this that I came up with:

- We've been spelling Boone Logan's name wrong for years.

- Logan has been stealing Gardner's gloves since he's been a Yankee, a la Ruben Rivera. To get the maximum value for this one, he wanted to be sure Overbay used it in his first start in RF.

- The whole team switched gloves in the commercial break before this picture. David Adams had the catcher's mitt, but no one seemed to notice.

Do you have a creative explanation to this non-story? If so, leave a comment!
