Karstens is 0-0, 1.80 in one career start against the Orioles (5.0 IP, 1 H, 1 ER) back in September of `06.  Cabrera has struggled against the Yanks during his career (2-4, 4.34 in 10 starts).

Both Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain are unavailable, so it looks like we're going to see a lot of Jim Brower, Kyle Farnsworth, and Ron Villone.  Yippee!

The top graphic is the road jersey logo of the Baltimore Orioles from 1956 to 1972.  The bottom graphic is NOT the exact font worn by the current Yankees, but it's the closest I could find with short notice.  I hope to get the real thing soon.

I've researched this a number of times and have always come up empty.  If anyone knows the specific name of the current or old Yankee font, I would appreciate it if you tossed that info my way.  I've been told that the font on the old Yankee jerseys no longer exist, but I'm not sure I buy that notion.
