Pregame at Yankee Stadium

Tonight’s Lineup against Mike Mussina and the Yankees

Pods, LF … Iguchi, 2B … AJ, C … PK, 1B … Perez, DH … Dye, RF … Rowand, CF … Crede, 3B … Uribe, SS … El Duque returns.

This is the first time in his career AJ has hit third.  In fact, he has at least one at-bat at every other spot in the batting order.

Everett Update

Carl continues to improve and took batting practice tonight.  Ozzie said he hopes to be available for Wednesday’s day game.

Yankee Stadium

There is something special about Yankee Stadium.  The buzz, the feel.  Just like New York, some guys like it, some could leave it.  Before the game, Ozzie stressed that these three games were just like any other.  "We are going to try to do the same things we have done all season to win," he said.  "Some people think these games mean more here.  There are 26 reasons, 26 World Titles, here, but for me, it’s just baseball.  I have good memories here and bad memories."


I was wondering if you could tell us a little bit about the rooming/hotel situations when you go on the road. Keep up the good work!

All the players were wearing yellow wrist bands and yelow ribbons on sunday. What were they in support of?

The yellow wrist bands were something to do with a children’s cancer charity. I don’t mean to be negative, but as soon as Hernandez gets behind in the count, he gets into trouble… =(

What was missing from the Trib yesterday?

First off, thanks for this incredible journal- I look forward to reading the updates everyday! I was just wondering How Buerhle is doin?

I thought the yellow was for our troops….


So, when are you going to talk about jobs in baseball?
