Pregame Notes 29 April 2008

So that's it, then.

I will never have another undergraduate class, or another undergraduate final, ever again. Well, I still have two papers and a thesis defense, but that's besides the point.

Anyway, the stuff you care about:

The Yankees finally return home (you mean we don't get to hit first any more?), where they will start the homestand by facing the Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers, as you may have heard, got off to one of the worst starts that a baseball franchise can get off to, but they seem to be on their way to turning it around. They have Kenny Rogers on the mound tonight, who is getting up to Jaime Moyer territory in terms of age.

The Yankees are going with Phil Hughes at the opposite end of the spectrum; he is yet to have a win though he has pitched noticeably better in his last two starts.

Alex Rodriguez is sitting out the game with an aggravated quad injury; Morgan Ensberg will play third, Jason Giambi will DH, Shelley Duncan will play first, and both Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui will play in the outfield as Melky Cabrera gets a very deserved night off. Chris Stewart will get his first start behind the plate after being called up from AAA Scranton; it's really weird to think that I just saw him play on Sunday...

More after the game.
