- Joe has announced Joba as the officially official 8th-inning setup man for Mo. Given the way he's looked the last couple times out combined with Dave Robertson's inconsistency and Chan Ho Park's injury, you can't even try to argue with that decision.
- Phil Hughes makes his 2nd start tonight. How will he look on what should be a regular rest pattern but could seem a bit short considering he was skipped the first time through the rotation? We'll find out in a few hours. Seeing as how he's facing a lineup that features Kevin Kouzmanoff as its cleanup hitter, Hughes should fare well if his stuff is working like it was the first time out.
- What Ben Sheets will the Yankee lineup see tonight? The guy who couldn't get one fucking out in a Spring Training start or the guy who's 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA so far and threw 6 shutout innings his last time on the hill?
- Swish out and Randy Winn in for a start in right tonight. I'm a little surprised by this move since Swish finally got off the schnide last night with a hit and a couple RBIs. Is Swish hurt or sick? If not, why is he getting a day off? Call me crazy but I like Randy Winn right where he is as the 8th or 9th-inning defensive replacement. I want Swish's bat (and patience) in the lineup against a good starting pitcher 25 hours a day, 8 days a week.
