The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles meet tonight in Baltimore's Camden Yards. And the question has to be asked. With phenom Stephen Strasburg making his major-league debut just down the road for the Washington Nationals, will anybody even be in the seats? Will anybody be watching on television? Does anybody care?
The Yankees are not used to being second-fiddle, the sideshow, the sidebar story if you will. But, that is exactly what they are tonight as they open a three-game series with the Orioles.

If you watch the Yanks tonight (and I will bet you will be peeking at Strasburg tonight if you can) you will see a pretty darn good young pitcher for the Yanks in the 7-1 Phil Hughes. He faces the winless veteran Kevin Millwood.

COUPLE OF QUICK NOTES: Guys, please DO NOT post your own overflow threads. Let someone from the PA staff do that, if one becomes necessary. Threads posted by community members end up as 'FanPosts' and can splinter the discussion. If you think one is needed, ask for one. ALSO ... here we go again. Let's lay off the personal attacks and the name-calling. Behave like a grown-up, and remember that everyone in those (except for bestofboston) is in there because they love the Yankees. I really don't know why 'best' keeps coming back for more beatings.
