Open Thread: Game 43-Yanks vs Mets

The Big Unit tries to start another winning streak for the Yanks as he gets his first taste of the Subway Series when he takes the mound for the New York Yankees in the middle game of their weekend set with the New York Mets at Shea Stadium.

Although Randy hasn't looked like the flame throwing

lefthander in previous years, he has pitched well and I believe his velocity will pick up as the season goes on. Torre's not saying, but I wonder how much that groin injury still bothers him?

Mike Cameron acknowledged Johnson's presence is downright scary.

"It's unbelievable," Cameron said. "I would rather face Pedro Martinez than face that guy."

I missed the game
but I know Randy got smacked around today and the Yanks couldn't hit Benson. Can anyone fill me in?
