PREGAME NOTES:

  • Believe it or not, the Yanks are the only team in the AL East with a winning record on the road. They also hold a 6-5 edge in the season series against the Rays through the first 11 games.
  • Jose Molina is starting behind the plate for the fifth straight game, but Girardi continues to insist that Jorge Posada's shoulder is fine.
  • Edwin Jackson is a lifetime 2-2, 4.42 ERA, 1.45 WHIP in 10 games (6 starts) against the Yanks. He is 1-1, 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP in 3 starts against them in 2008.
    Sidney Ponson is a lifetime 8-9, 4.29 ERA, 1.39 WHIP in 25 games (24 starts) against the Rays.
    Rays' hitters vs. Ponson can be viewed here. Yanks' hitters vs. Jackson can be viewed here.
  • BTW, am I the only one who thinks this "Support the 'Stache" promotion and mustache giveaway at the Stadium today is really really really stupid?
