PREGAME NOTES:

  • Hideki Matsui nows leads the AL in hitting at .339 - just ahead of Victor Martinez (.337). Matsui also leads the AL with a .424 OBP.
  • The last time the Tribe swept the Yanks at the Stadium was April of 1989.
  • Yanks have a paltry 5-10 record against the AL Central this season. Last season, they bludgeoned the AL Central with a 30-11 record.
  • Paul Byrd is a lifetime 2-4, 4.64 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 9 starts against the Yanks, but did win his last start against them in a less than stellar outing on April 25 (5.2 IP, 4 ER).
  • Moose is a lifetime 12-9, 4.75 ERA, 1.24 WHIP in 26 starts against the Tribe, including a 5-2 victory over them on April 28 at the Jake.
  • Yanks' career numbers vs. Byrd can be viewed here. Tribe career numbers vs. Moose can be viewed here.
  • For you baseball purists, Fred Bierman of the NY Times penned an interesting brief history on stirrups and the current "wide array of hosiery styles across MLB." Believe it or not, Manny Ramirez has more in common with the 1868 Cincinnati Red Stockings than one would expect. Who knew?
