PREGAME NOTES: 

The Yankee bullpen has been horrific of late with a 7.34 ERA over their last 9 games.

Yanks have lost 6 of their last 9 after winning 8 straight.

Matt Harrison has never faced the Yanks or any of their hitters.  He is 1-1, 6.91 ERA, 1.74 WHIP in 3 starts at home this season.

Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 9-7, 5.36 ERA, 1.59 WHIP 19 starts against the Rangers.  He is 7-3, 3.50 ERA, 1.36 WHIP in 11 starts on the road this season.

Rangers' hitters vs. Pettitte can be viewed here.  

GIAMBI OUT, SEXSON IN:  Here's another case of Joe Girardi overmanaging his starting lineup.  I get that Harrison is a lefty and all - but he's an inexperienced lefty who has been absolutely dreadful and Giambi had his first good game last night in a month. 

Seems a bit counter-productive if you ask me especially when you consider that Richie Sexson has been utterly useless during his short stint with the Yanks.

 

JOBA TO SEE DR. JAMES ANDREWS:  Pete Abe reports that Joba Chamberlain did have his MRI today and is now headed to see uber-specialist Dr. James Andrews for a second option on his ailing shoulder. 

Not surprisingly, Cashman and Co. would not release any further details on the MRI.

While this is certainly not good news, we shouldn't jump to conclusions and speculate on his future.  The one thing we could probably count on is Joba going on the DL and missing at least a couple of starts.  Postseason be damned, the Yanks will not take any chances on the crown jewel of their franchise.

I'm sure we'll find out more details tomorrow.
