PREGAME NOTES:

  • First off, Evan Longoria beat out Jason Giambi and Jermaine Dye for the final spot on the AL All Star team. In my opinion, Longoria was unquestionably the most deserving candidate and is going to be a star in this league for years to come.
  • Yankee starters have managed four straight quality starts over their 4-game winning streak despite scoring a grand total of 14 runs.
    The pen has been phenomenal over their last 12 games with a combined 1.09 ERA and only 23 hits allowed in 41.1 IP.
  • Mike Mussina is a lifetime 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.67 WHIP in one career start against the Pirates.
  • Paul Maholm is a lifetime 0-1, 5.06 ERA, 2.06 WHIP in one start against the Yanks. He is 4-1, 3.47 ERA, 1.22 WHIP in 9 starts at home this season.
  • Pirates' hitters vs. Moose can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Maholm can be viewed here.
  • And finally, Richie Sexson was released by the Mariners today. Perhaps what is most humiliating about Sexson's season is that he was replaced by Miguel Cairo in the Mariners' lineup. Although his numbers were horrific against right-handers (.178 / .281 / .304) in 191 AB, his numbers were pretty good against left-handers (.344 / .423 / .623) in 61 AB. He'd be a typical low-risk/high reward guy, so you've gotta wonder if Cashman is thinking about rolling the dice on him.
