Chien-Ming Wang,  RHP  (3-3,  4.28)

Johnny Damon is out of the lineup again with his recurring leg cramps.  Jeez, this guy has more problems with cramps than any woman I've ever met.

The Yanks send Chien-Ming Wang to the mound in hopes of rebounding after a dismal performance by the bullpen last night, while the Angels counter with Kelvim Escobar.  

Throughout his career, the Yanks have had pretty good success against Escobar (6-7,  5.23) -- but most of that success was during his early days in Toronto.
