Photo: Yuniesky Betancourt ain't scared of no Invisible Catcher!

David Brown

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.
