PREGAME NOTES:

  • Hideki Matsui is getting the day off for some unknown reason. You would think that a smart guy like Girardi would realize that sitting his best hitter all season the day after the team struggled to score runs would be a bad idea. Matsui is also the near everyday DH so I don't understand the need to rest him.
    Brian Bannister is a lifetime 1-1, 8.10 ERA, 1.90 WHIP in 2 starts against the Yanks, including 1-0, 3.60 ERA, 1.80 WHIP in 2008.
    Andy Pettitte is a lifetime 12-3, 3.06 ERA, 1.26 WHIP in 20 games (18 starts) against the Royals, including 1-0, 1.35 ERA, 1.05 WHIP in 2008.
