If Brett Gardner were to injure himself today (on a slide, etc.), forcing a trip to the 15-day disabled list, what would the Yankees’ left field situation look like tomorrow? Would manager Joe Girardi then use Marcus Thames more often, despite his iron glove, or would he simply alter the existing platoon’s configuration [...]

If nothing else this week, we should see some good pitching matchups in Oakland. The Yankees are trotting out Javy Vazquez, who’s looking to have a rebound start, Phil Hughes, who’s looking to build on a pretty solid start, and CC Sabathia who’s just been rolling so far this season.
They’ll be opposed [...]
It occurred to me that the last time the Yankees were in Oakland they kicked their series off against old friend Brett Tomko, who was none too happy about being DFA’d by the team a month earlier.
Longtime scout Frank Piliere of MLB Fanhouse recently penned a piece about two young Yankee pitchers whose careers appear to be going in opposite directions, one being Phil Hughes and the other Joba Chamberlain. He writes:
