Two former teammates from the Sunshine State square off in this afternoon’s contest. This series facing the Cubs starts a stretch for the Yanks where 20 of the next 30 games will be on the road, and you’ll be hearing that a lot the rest of the way. The Yanks have more road games than home games left, with August (9 home/21 away) being especially lopsided.
Here’s a few quick Yankee facts and news items to get you ready for the game:
-You know that Yankee bullpen that has been decimated by injuries? The one with Soriano, Feliciano, Joba and Marte on the shelf indefinitely? Best bullpen ERA in the AL, and by a fairly wide margin.
-A-Rod’s next run scored will be number 1800 for his career. Let’s hope he does it in style with #627.
-Alex was caught cavorting in enemy territory. This has to stop.
-In minor matters, Staten Island opened their season yesterday (5-3 loss featuring a Mason Williams HR) and Manny Banny got shellacked.
-This just cracked me up.
4:10 start, because folks in Chicago just have to be different. GO YANKS!!!!!
