New, comments

Game time is 7:05 on MASN2. And you KNOW that Papa Jim will be back in the MASN booth tonight. He wouldn't miss a chance to hobknob with the Yankees and wish he'd been one.

Today's Starting Pitchers GS IP ERA WHIP BAA BB K W-L
Phil Hughes - RH 3 11 9.00 2.18 .340 8 9 0-2
Daniel Cabrera - RH 3 16.2 5.94 1.68 .239 12 11 0-0

The Yankees teed off on Cabrera last season, as he went 1-3 with a 6.67 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in five starts. In his 27 innings against New York, he gave up 32 hits, walked 17 and struck out 18.

Hughes doesn't turn 22 until June. He had a solid first splash in the majors in 2007, but has been lit up early on in '08. But don't let his numbers fool you into thinking this guy can't dominate. He's really, really good.

Joe LaPointe at the NY Times has dropped a bombshell: attendance at Camden Yards is down? Losses are piling up in Baltimore! Check the records, skeech. (I know, I know. Reality. F the Yankees.)

LET'S. GO. O'S.
