-Should be a good pitching match-up if it were not for the fact that the Yankees offence was so good I would say this one will be a low scoring one.

-The Rangers best chance is if Joba doesn’t respond well to the extra rest. Don’t count on it.

-Posada got a little extra rest with  three days off in the last 5 but he’s back in the line up tonight look for him to hit um hard.

– I was Wrong Wagner ended up going to the Red Sox it was a good move for them, they will certainly have one of the better back ends of the rotation in the game. I guess he decided at the end of the day the arbitration thing was going to happen if he stayed with the Mets anyhow.

-Ex Yankee Ivan Rodriguez will be behind the plate for the Rangers tonight. I love Pudge and with Millwood being quick to the plate look for him to throw someone out tonight.

-I’m looking forward to what the Yankees shape up to be their post season roster. Especially the Bull Pen. Who do you think will be in the pen for the Yankees?
