New York Yankees News: Japanese Media Frenzy, Gardner & Pettitte

First crack at Yu.

Tonight we'll see just the seventh all Japanese starting pitcher matchup ever as Hiroki Kuroda goes for the Yankees against Yu Darvish of the Rangers.* The contest will be broadcast live in Japan.

  • May 3rd could be Brett Gardner's ETA. That's the start of a four-game set in Kansas City. The gritty, gutty left fielder was off to the best start of his career: .817 OPS through nine games. Hopefully there's no rust when he returns.
  • It looks like Andy Pettitte will make three more minor league starts before getting called up, beginning tomorrow night in Trenton. I'll be at and live-tweeting the game.
  • Check out a solid feature story on A-Rod. The guy really does seem to love the game of baseball. I could see him becoming a coach after his playing days.
