All the regulars are in except for Posada who gets the night off the get away day. As a 38 year old catcher 2 days off is a good thing . For that matter all the Yankees get tomorrow off and then its off to Boston for the Weekend. Hopefully to put the final nails in the coffin that is the AL East. 7 games the Red Sox have a shot of coming back 10 games and they are done.

Tonight is the Premiere of Chad Gaudin. I think he will be better than his numbers suggest he has had success pitching in Oakland in the past.

Rooks fearless predictions

1. Tex HR

2. Muti hit game for Jeter

3. 6 innings for Gaudin

4. RBI for A-rod

as always whatever comes true $10 goes to the Humane Society to fight against animal abuse. $140 so far this year.

The Yankees and Joba have worked out a plan that will get him 6 more starts in the regular season. My guess is 35-45 innings he is currently at 126 this formulates to around 160-170ish about what we expected. Obviously there will be times where he is skipped or gets extra rest to make that happen with 46 games left. This could be good news for Chad Gaudin should he pitch well tonight.
