Jorge Posada is back in the lineup after resting the weekend (when was the last time that happened?) due to his stiff neck.  Wilson Betemit gets the start at 1B tonight over Andy Phillips.

Wang is 3-1, 4.82 in 8 starts against the Orioles.  Guthrie has been a pain in the ass against the Yanks (1-0, 2.52 in 3 games).

On this day in 1995, Mickey Charles Mantle died at the age of 63 from liver cancer in Dallas, Texas.

The featured graphic for tonight's game is a logo commemorating the St. Louis Browns' lone appearance in the World Series during their 51-year history.  The Browns would lose the 1944 World Series to the cross-town St. Louis Cardinals, 4-2.
