Nobody should blame Kansas City Royals infielder Yuniesky Betancourt(notes) for dropping his bat and running away. The New York Yankees have created the ultimate baseball weapon: A completely concealed catcher!

Almost completely. We can still see the mask. Actually, in this undoctored photo — really, we swear to Steinbrenner, it's not Photoshopped — Jorge Posada(notes) is just out of range, and probably about to make a head's up play.

Yet, quite politely, Posada left his catcher's mask just floating there. What's keeping it aloft? Mini jetpacks? Nanotechnology? Puppet strings?

Posada's not talking. Because nobody can find him.
