PREGAME NOTES:

  • First off, Ian Kennedy will make his 2008 debut for Scranton tonight against the Charlotte Knights (ChiSox). I'll be sure to keep you posted on his outing.
  • Pete Abe reports that A-Rod will begin baseball-related activities tomorrow and notes the tentative plan is to have him work out in Tampa on Thursday and perhaps play a couple of rehab games next Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully, he will be activated a week from tomorrow.
  • Wilson Betemit has been activated from the 15-day DL and Alberto Gonzalez has been sent back down to Scranton. I know I'm not alone when I say Gonzalez is by far the more useful player to this team and would rather see Betemit gone.
  • Fausto Carmona is a lifetime 0-1, 3.86 ERA in 5 games (2 starts) against the Yanks.
  • Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 6-8, 4.63 ERA in 17 starts against the Tribe, including the short end of a 6-4 defeat on April 25. Hard to believe, but Pettitte has not beaten the Tribe at Yankee Stadium since June of '96.
  • Yanks' career numbers vs. Carmona can be viewed here. Tribe career numbers vs. Pettitte can be viewed here.
  • By now, most of you have probably heard about A-Rod wussing out in the delivery room while C-Rod was giving birth to their first child. Pretty funny stuff and something else he will probably never live down.
