Curt Schilling,  RHP  (5-2,  3.68)

Mike Mussina will try to keep the Yanks' modest 2-game win streak going against Curt Schilling.  Moose had been struggling terribly this season, but was very good in his last start on Sunday against LAA.  

The Yanks have knocked Schilling around pretty hard this season (0-1,  6.92 in two starts), so let's hope they can stick it to the jackass for a third time.

Pete Abraham reports that MLB has made a quick ruling on Scott Proctor and has determined that he will not be suspended for last night's shenanigans.  This really surprises me, but I'm glad the Yanks won't lose one of their few dependable arms out of that pen.  

Scotty got lucky on this one.

Abraham further reports that MLB has already issued a warning to both teams today before the first pitch has even been thrown.
