Tonight's game doesn't carry much rooting interest for me, since I'm not about to cheer for the New York Yankees or lend my support to any team managed by Mike Scioscia. I just don't like the dude. He stole the job of my hero, Steve Yeager, just because he knew Spanish and could catch Fernando Valenzuela, and hit something like 50 points better. Whatever. Steve Yeager could throw guys out from his knees!
I digress. The Phillies took care of stealing back home-field advantage last night from my Dodgers, and all of LA is a twitter with the thoughts of a LA Series with the Angels. OK, maybe not. Maybe they're all more interested in the McCourt divorse and who gets the team. Or maybe over the split of Justin TImberlake and Jessica Biel. I'm guessing it's the last one. She wasn't good enough for you anyway, JT.
So back to tonight's game. John Lackey faces CC Sabathia. Bobby Abreu doesn't think $16 million is enough for the next two years. And the Yankess are considering using just three starters in this series.
