PREGAME NOTES

  • Forgot to mention this earlier on the Joba thread, but Joe Girardi noted on Mike and the Mad Dog that Jorge Posada will begin throwing tomorrow in game action for the first time since he was placed on the DL. He could be ready to be activated on Tuesday but it is more likely to happen on Thursday.
  • Jason Giambi is on fire - hitting .339 with 6 homers and 14 RBI in May and raising his average 80 points from .164 to .244.
  • Mike Mussina is a lifetime 20-6, 3.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP in 30 starts against the Twins. But he is 0-4, 5.58 ERA, 1.47 WHIP over his last 6 starts against them.
    Glen Perkins has never faced the Yanks.
