PREGAME NOTES:

  • Good news on A-Rod. He completed his first rehab workout in Tampa today and everything seems to be going swimmingly. He will have another MRI on Monday morning before he gets the okay to play in a couple of extended games. Assuming there are no setbacks, he could be activated as soon as Thursday (May 15).
  • In a bit of a surprise, Kyle Farnsworth's three-game suspension for throwing behind the head of Manny Ramirez on April 19 has been reduced to just one game. He will serve it tonight.
  • Chris Britton has been demoted once again to Scranton to make room for Kei Igawa on the roster.
  • Igawa makes his first career start against the Tigers. He is already slated to make another start on Wednesday in Tampa.
    Kenny Rogers is a lifetime 6-7, 6.25 ERA, 1.87 WHIP in 36 starts against the Yanks, including a 6-4 victory on April 29 at the Stadium. Yanks career numbers vs. Rogers can be viewed here.

I'm going to put the whole Joba fist pump thing to rest for now, but Joel Sherman made a good point on his Hardball Blog today:

We [NY media] criticize Joe Torre and Tom Glavine for showing too little emotion, and then we criticize Joba Chamberlain and Jose Reyes for showing too much. Is there some pamphlet they can purchase somewhere to learn just the right amount of emotion to show to make all the people happy all time?

Poll

Am I the only one who feels Igawa is a helpless lamb being led to the slaughterhouse tonight against the Tigers lineup?
