Open Thread: Game 83:Yanks vs Indians

The Yanks open an important four game series with The Indians ( what series isn't important?) who are hot right now so it should be a rock-em-sock-em' weekend.

Mussina vs Milwood is the match up and luckily Mike has been pitching pretty well up till now.

Related notes:Yankees promote prospect Cabrera...Looking for a jump start in center field, the Yankees promoted prospect Melky Cabrera on Thursday, inserting him into the starting lineup against the Indians.

Cabrera, 20, opened the season with Double-A Trenton, hitting .267 with nine home runs and 44 RBIs in 75 games. He was promoted to Triple-A Columbus on June 28, where he hit .324 with three homers and 11 RBIs in nine games.

To make room for Cabrera on the 25-man roster, the Yankees placed right-handed pitcher Carl Pavano on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, retroactive to June 28.
More to come...
