Yankees at Rangers, Memorial Day Gamer

I'm headed out for the day, so here's what you need to know before the game.

  • The Yankees were 2-2 last year at the Ballpark in Arlington.
  • Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain and Chien Ming Wang have all suffered devestating injuries while pitching in the state of Texas (Wang was in Houston; Hughes and Joba in Arlington)
  • So, of course, Hughes pitches today.
  • Since the Yankees are on the road, they can't walk off. Boo.
  • The Yanks went 8-2 on the homestand and are in the thick of the AL East race.
  • I'll put the over/under at four HR/game.
